[SOLVED] Which nameserver is used?

Hello,

i change the nameserver in the resolv.conf file and want to test the new settings.

On Linux i can call nslookup and it shows the nameserver which is used:

Code:
># nslookup www.unix.com
Server:         XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Address:        XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   www.unix.com
Address: 4.59.125.171

If i use the same command on HPUX it only shows me this information:

Code:
># nslookup www.unix.com
Using /etc/hosts on:  HOST

looking up FILES
Trying DNS
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.unix.com
Address:  4.59.125.171

Is there a chance to see the used nameserver in HPUX to?

Best Regards

soeren

Thanks for the fast response.

The "dig" command shows the used namserver to:

Code:
dig www.unix.com

; <<>> DiG 9.3.2 <<>> www.unix.com
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 590
