I can not install nslookup in my CentOS 7.2:

yum install nslookup
[root@localhost network-scripts]# yum install -y nslookup
added plugin:fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.sunnyvision.com
 * epel: my.mirrors.thegigabit.com
 * extras: mirror.sunnyvision.com
 * updates: mirrors.icidc.com
No available nslookup

nslookup is contained in bind-utils package.

You should use below command to install it:

# yum install bind-utils

You can use yum whatprovides nslookup to see which package delivers it:

~$ yum whatprovides nslookup
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Determining fastest mirrors
32:bind-utils-9.11.4-9.P2.el7.x86_64 : Utilities for querying DNS name servers
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/nslookup

32:bind-utils-9.9.4-74.el7_6.2.x86_64 : Utilities for querying DNS name servers
Repo        : @updates
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/nslookup

Then you can use yum to install the package using yum install bind-utils
