DNS: computer name under root domain "." resolve problem (need to resovle pure computer-xyz name without domain suffix)
Posted on 2006-04-13
I need to setup bind on linux box the following way:
I have domain abc.com, I have setup the bind to resolve comp1.abc.com, comp2.abc.com, etc... So I can resolve any of my computers by FQDN (compxyz.abc.com) Now I need to resolve (on my local network, where this DNS is the primary DNS server) computer name without a domain suffix-> compxyz for example. It can be done by auto suffix insert after the computer name, but I don't like to do this that way. DNS must be able to resolve the pure computer name (under domain "." -> root)
Is there any way to do this?
