NAME

       nss-resolve, libnss_resolve.so.2 - Provide hostname resolution via
       systemd-resolved.service

SYNOPSIS

       libnss_resolve.so.2

DESCRIPTION

       nss-resolve is a plugin module for the GNU Name Service Switch (NSS) functionality of the
       GNU C Library (glibc) enabling it to resolve host names via the systemd-resolved(8) local
       network name resolution service.

       To activate the NSS module, "resolve" has to be added to the line starting with "hosts:"
       in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

       It is recommended to place "resolve" early in the nsswitch.conf line (but after the
       "files" entry), replacing the "dns" entry if it exists, to ensure DNS queries are always
       routed via systemd-resolved(8).

EXAMPLE

       Here is an example /etc/nsswitch.conf file that enables resolve correctly:

           passwd:         compat mymachines
           group:          compat mymachines
           shadow:         compat

           hosts:          files resolve mymachines myhostname
           networks:       files

           protocols:      db files
           services:       db files
           ethers:         db files
           rpc:            db files

           netgroup:       nis

       Note that nss-resolve will chain-load nss-dns if systemd-resolved.service is not running,
       ensuring that basic DNS resolution continues to work if the service is down.
