How to add a client to DNS server

Hi all,

What is the procedure to add a client to a DNS server.
what are the settings and files need to be added/changed ?
thanks in advance!
# 2  
you mean new entry in DNS server config file ?
# 3  
Probably yes. (i am not sure as i am very new)
# 4  
It works like this.

DNS server will have the DB of IP and hostname@domain_name information.

A client which wants the translation from IP to hostname or hostname to IP will have to do this with the help of DNS server.

For a client to contact the DNS server, the DNS server details has to be configure in /etc/resolv.conf of client machine.

If you want to add new IP to hostname mapping in the DNS server, you will have to change the zone files in DNS server.

so what are you looking for .
