after reboot the system the file lost this line

How to add this entry in the file after reboot the system?

The “root” file system is created in a ram disk; it is created afresh when you boot ZS. Therefore your /etc/hosts will be overwritten with the ZS default, in the next boot.

For persistence, you can create a file, with the “extra” entries to your requirements, somewhere in the third partition (the DB partition) and you can link /etc/hosts to it using a post boot script. Make sure that you copy over ZS’s entries into this file as well, for it’s own operation!


rm /etc/hosts
ln -sf /DB/path/name/to/my.etc.hosts /etc/hosts
