DNS

Overriding DNS is useful if you need to run tests on a pre-production environment or on a specific cluster node of a production environment.

IP addresses v4 and v6 are handled.

  1. Check the option Enable DNS overriding.

  3. In the Host field, enter or select a hostname among all the servers defined in the project.
  4. In IP Addresses, enter IP addresses directly in the field or click the pencil icon to open a text area dialog box.
