    Configuring a Domain Search (NSM Procedure)

    You can configure the name of the domain in which the clients search for a dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) server host. The domain name is appended to hostnames that are not fully qualified. If you do not configure a domain name, the default is the client’s current domain. The domain search sets the order in which the clients append domain names when searching for the IP address of a host. You can include one or more domain names in the list.

    To configure a domain search:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device for which you want to configure the domain search.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select System > Domain Search.
    4. Click + to enter a new domain search name.
    5. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
      • Apply—Applies the domain search settings.
