I assume from the asterisk cli prompt iax2 show registry looks something 
like this:

Host                  dnsmgr  Username    Perceived Refresh  State   N       2148 60  Registered

Exit the CLI

cd /etc/asterisk
wget https://github.com/N4IRS/AllStar/raw/master/configs/dnsmgr.conf

restart asterisk
