  • Go to Google (http://www.google.com)
  • Key in "how to configure DNS in redhat enterprise 6" into the search box
  • Press ENTER
  • Read results
You will find MANY how-to documents, that detail how to do this, such as this (the VERY FIRST HIT)
https://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/R...S_Servers.html

We are very happy to help you with SPECIFIC questions/problems, but please put some effort into looking things up. How-to guides are very easy to find. Also, since you're using Red Hat enterprise, you can call Red Hat for support, since you're paying for it, right????

...which does not tell the OP how to CONFIGURE DNS, which is what was asked. If they put in an IP address without having DNS configured, how will that get addresses resolved?
