Steps for Linux Enforce server and all detection servers:
- SSH to Enforce/Detection server(s), login as appuser and update resolv.conf:
sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
- Verify nameserver entries point to valid DNS servers. Add multiple lines for more DNS servers
- Add in a search line. This will allow you to use short names instead of FQDNs within DLP.
- Save the file and exit
- Restart network services
sudo service network restart
