Re: Can BIND resolve "nodomain" machine names? "myserver", not "myserver.mydomain"...?

Thanks for the reply Andrea, but no... nowadays /etc/host.conf is not even relevant as it's (old) behaviour is now (since libc6?) defined in /etc/nsswitch.conf It would configure the way the dns client lookups up names, looking at local files and then to name server... But it's a "client behaviour", it does not affect BIND AFAIK...

IIRC you need to add a line "order hosts,bind" on your /etc/host.conf...
