[LDM #RVC-520134]: Reverse DNS Lookup Oddity



Robert,

Our systems administrator suggests that you heck your "/etc/hosts" file for 
conflicting entries.

> I talked to one of the admins.  It seems the most relevant change might be 
> the fact that we no longer have NIS running in our network.  I guess my 
> question is where will gethosbyaddr seek out the hostname if "named" is not 
> running locally, "/etc/hosts" contains no entry, and NIS is unavailable?  
> Will it check the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf?  In the mean time, unless 
> you have any other thoughts (or we stumble upon a DNS configuration issue), I 
> think the easiest thing for us to do is retain a couple entries in the 
> /etc/hosts file -- in any case, this will resolve the hostname.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
