Please add nslookup, host, dig as part of the base os and not part of option 31, dns
I need to use nslookup (could maybe settle for dig or host) from IBM i. However only my lpars with option 31, dns, loaded have that command. I feel that option 31 dns is a 'host' feature while nslookup, etc are client features. I do not want to load option 31 because that uses an ancient version of bind and caused me to fail audits. I've already submitted RFE's to use newer versions of bind and IBM says they have no intention of doing so and will just continue to PTF dns and only change the version of bind to one that's only a few years behind at a release level. Please add nslookup to systems without option 31, dns.
I am using HA Replication software and during a switch I need to verify dns lookup without having option 31 dns loaded.
