    Brand new installation and trying to set up local DNS server but instead of wizard I get NetworkManager. Is there a wiki please.

    My first question is that it seems I should use a fixed IP and lan (copper) connection to get started. Is that correct?
    I ask because I am using DHCP wifi connection on laptop at present to keep things simple but just checking.

    What do you mean by setting up a local DNS Server?

    Do you really mean installing a BIND DNS server?
    Or, do you really mean configuring your network settings to point to a remote DNS server?

    If you mean setting up your own BIND server,
    The question has to be asked, if you have some experience and understand basic concepts and objexts like zones, reverse lookup zones, TTL, different kinds of DNS records. If you have some understanding of those, you should be able to install the YaST DNS Server module, fill in the forms and be running in a few minutes.
    If you are pretty much learning from scratch, then the SUSE documentation Knurpht pointed to or the following openSUSE documentation might be helpful

    https://doc.opensuse.org/documentati...e/cha.dns.html

    Or, you might find that a more in-depth guide might be helpful.

    If you have questions about specific issues, go ahead and post...

    Hi Tsu,
    Your are right, I am not there yet. I had thought initially that with NFSv4 I needed local DNS set up but now I find NFSv4 is not needed so do not need to go into it now.
    I do believe however that I should have local DNS set up correctly in anticipation of bigger network and small, business requirements. Not needed yet but plenty of reading required first. Thanks for the gentle help.
    Regards,
    Budgie

    You may want to set up a new BIND DNS server only if your existing DNS doesn't support the name resolution you need.
    And, even then if you only need a very special name resolution only within the machine you're working on, you may prefer to simply add an entry to your /etc/hosts file.

    If you have questions about setting up NFS or something else and you can't find a reliable guide,
    Try to describe in detail to the best of your ability what you want to set up, and then post.
