Can the license master config point to a DNS name?

I.e if there was an issue with Licese master server we do not want to make config changes on all indexers.... we want to just make a DNS change......

Also what .conf file is this configured in on Linux?

I use a DNS CName for the license master on all of my license slaves.

On each of the slaves, you can add a stanza in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/server.conf where you configure the URI of the master :

[license]
master_uri = https://splunk-license-master:8089
