Create and Manage Resolvers

OnApp Resolvers are names given to computers located with institutional networks and are used to meet user's request of a domain name. Resolvers work like DNS servers – they translate a hostname to an IP address, thus, linking your computer and the Internet's DNS infrastructure. Note that you should specify at least 2 resolvers for each network in OnApp. When a new VS is provisioned, these resolvers are injected into the resolver configuration automatically.
