DNS is the Domain Name System, which maintains a database that can help your
computer translate domain names such as to IP addresses such as As no individual DNS server is large enough to keep a database for the
entire Internet, they can refer requests to other DNS servers.
DNS is based on the named daemon, which is built on the BIND (Berkeley Internet
Name Domain) package developed through the Internet Software Consortium
Users wants to access by name so DNS will interpret the name into ip address. You need
to specify the Address if DNS server in each and every client machine. In Redhat
Enterprise Linux, you need to specify the DNS server into /etc/resolv.conf file.
After Specifying the DNS server address, you can verify using host, dig and nslookup

9 :: Suppose neo user tried by: dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/neo/somefile bs=1024 count=70 files created successfully. Again neo tried to create file having 70K using following command: dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/neo/somefile bs=1024 count=70 But he is unable to create the file. Make the user can create the file less then 70K.

Very Tricky question from redhat. Actually question is giving scenario to you to
implement quota to neo user. You should apply the quota to neo user on /home that neo
user shouldn't occupied space more than 70K.
1. vi /etc/fstab
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults,usrquota 0 0
To enable the quota on filesystem you should mount the filesystem with usrquota for user
quota and grpquota for group quota.
2. touch /home/aquota.user ->Creating blank quota database file.
3. mount -o remount /home-> Remounting the /home with updated mount options.
You can verify that /home is mounted with usrquota options or not using mount
4. quotacheck -u /home ->Initialization the quota on /home
5. edquota -u neo /home-> Quota Policy editor
See the snapshot
Disk quotas for user neo (uid 500):
Filesystem blocks soft hard inodes soft hard
/dev/mapper/vo-myvol 2 30 70 1 0 0
Can you set the hard limit 70 and soft limit as you think like 30.
Verify using the repquota /home command.
