    DDNS issue??


    Hello all,
    In ddns, if I do a nslookup, it only works when I use a fully qualified...

    For instance...
    #nslookup
    >computername
    *** server can't find computername

    #nslookup
    >computername.domain

    I get the IP??

    What needs to be changed??

    Hi,

    You can use nslookup computername.domain or dig computername.domain

    I know that, what I am asking is why? What do I need to change so that forward lookups (nslookup) will work with in my domain using only a system name, not a fully qualified name.

    Right now for instance nslookup works if I use a fqdm, but if just look up a system name with out the .domain it fails to resolve.
