How would you configure the resolv.conf if you need to connect AIX to 2 domains where each domain has 2 nameservers? For example domaina has servers 10.1.2.3, 10.1.2.4 and domainb has servers 20.1.2.3, 20.1.2.4.

RE: adding 2 domains each with 2 nameservers in aix 6.1 resolv.conf

If you must use the external DNS servers I would do this:
1. specify servers for domain A in resolv.conf
2. In the servers for domain A configure forwarders for domain B

Another way to accomplish this is to run the local named and configure forwarding to those two domains.

Please explain what you mean by "run the local named and configure forwarding to those two domains." Thanks.

RE: adding 2 domains each with 2 nameservers in aix 6.1 resolv.conf

download and configure bind (named) locally. /etc/named.conf should have forwarder zones for the domains in question.
Local resolv.conf should have just one server, 127.0.0.1

Thank you for the clarification.
