Hi , i have a Server A ( VM machine ) with ip 1.11.1  ( for the shake of the example)
I also have the old Server A ( physical machine ) with IP 2.2.2.2

DNS record point to 2.2.2.2 ( old server)

If i ping from Server A  ( #ping Server A ) it will resolve to 2.2.2.2
I cant access the DNA records and change it.

My DBA asked me to ( at least for now) change the host record on the VM server to point to its self ( 1.1.1.1 )
Is there anything i can do on the VM machine to be able to ping it self correctly ?

I understand that when i ping from any other machine it will resolve to 2.2.2.2

Any input would be appreciated.

add a line in /etc/hosts that has the local IP address for itself, basically:

1.1.1.1 ServerA.domain.com ServerA

that way it will not try to resolve with DNS on the 2.2.2.2 address

Am I to assume that both Servers have the same name?
