On the RedHat box, I can ping a DNS entry only if I include the full name. For example:
ping box.example.com works but
ping box does not. Strange thing is, I can
ping box from a resent version of Ubuntu and from any Windows box.
On any computer, the command
dig box.example.com does show the resolved IP address in the ANSWERS SECTION. Using just the box name
dig box does not show the resolved IP address.
resolv.conf is fine.
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
The response to
dig box contains this line:
;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 38217
Please remember though, this somehow magically works the other servers. Are Ubuntu and Windows somehow enhancing the DNS lookup? Please suggest where I might go from here.
