Linux DNS questions

just freshly installed redhat 9.0 on a server at work.


trying to ping other machines on the network is acting kind of funny though

i can ping host.domain.xxx... but i cannot just ping the host

we have a interal dns and the host i am trying to ping is registered

there is no problems on any other server on the network....

only on the server we just redid..

what would cause me not to be able to ping just the host of any other pc on the network?

eg. if i ping 123
ping: unknown host 123


if i ping 123.domain.xxx
ping works fine


any ideaS?
