Pointing DNS Server to itself

Hi,

How can i point the NIOS appliance to be a dns resolver to itself when it resolving names for itself instead of pointing to another dns server? I asked this

because e.g. when you synchronizing its time to the external ntp server you must define a dns resolver even if the appliance is a running as a dns server.

thanks in advance

In the "Nameservers" field under the member's configuration tab, you can specify "127.0.0.1" and the appliance will resolve DNS names to itself. The DNS service needs to be configured and running (even if just forwarding to another host).
