Please first try the fully qualified name of your host, like hostname.domain.com instead of just typing hostname. If it connects, the problem is with the DNS settings of your client, in this case you should define "domain.com" as DNS suffix in your Network/DNS settings (please write if more detail needed)
Also please make sure, the DNS server in question is set as the current DNS on the client system.

If problems continue, nslookup command (from the command prompt) is the best way to start tracking the problem.

nslookup hostname.domain.com

searches for the specified address at the same time, you may see which server is being asked for the result.

nslookup hostname.domain.com nameserver.domain.com

on the other hand, queries a specific name server for the hostname.

If you still have no idea regarding the nature of the problem, please explain;

If this the case for all hostnames defined on that DNS ?
Is the problem persists for all of the client systems ?
Is this the only Zone on the DNS with the specific problem ?

Hope this helps,

try using the nslookup command and see if the DNS server that you are using is the real DNS server of your network
if so try to fix the problem, if its not accting as your DNS server (forward & revers) find up why...
