[IDD #ZIL-446337]: aliased domain names

> We are in the process of moving our LDM software from an older machine
> to a new system.  The old machine was named foehn.colorado.edu.  This
> name has been removed and it is only being used as an domain name alias.
> The new system is named sundowner.colorado.edu.  foehn is aliased to

Sounds good..

> -Will the alias of foehn work with LDM in the ldmd.conf files?  If so,
> how can I set it to do so.

As long as the alias is returned using a DNS nslookup (both forward and 
reverse) with the IP, no problems should arise.

> -If it cannot, could you provide me the current contact information for:
> rainbow.al.noaa.gog

Sure, we also have a logon to that machine so we can take a peek if you are 
encountering difficulties.

..or you can contact:

Eirh-Yu Hsie    hsie|a_t-s_i_g_n|al.noaa.gov

..but we are happy to work on it with you :)

alias ~should work, if not, we will place sundowner in the ALLOW.
