8.11. Resolving Hostnames in the FreeIPA Domain

It is possible to check the DNS entries for FreeIPA domain members using the dns-resolve command. If the record exists and is properly formatted in the DNS configuration, then the command returns the DNS record. If not, the command returns an error, that the hostname is not recognized within the DNS service.
$ipa dns-resolve server1.example.com
