Chrome command line parameters

I’m trying to override DNS while running a test. With my local Chrome, I can do that with the following command line:
[font=Courier]chrome.exe --host-rules=“MAP”[/font]

To do the same thing in webpagetest, I set “Command-line” (in the “Chrome” tab) to ‘–host-rules=“MAP”’. However, I then get an error message:
Invalid command-line option: “"”

Seems like the validation of command line parameters is not allowing spaces in parameters.
Is that a bug, or maybe an intentional protection against security problems?
Is there any other way to override DNS?

Try using the script tab with your test and use this:

usage: setDns
example: setDns

- Host name for the DNS entry to override
- IP Address for the host name to resolve to

Great, that approach solved my problem. Thanks for the hint!

For the benefit of other non-expert users - the script that does it for me is:

setDns navigate
(with the separators being tabs)
