    [Help] Problem Server DNS and Hostnames


    Hello friends, sorry for my poor English. I come from a long-standing problem I can not solve, and I need your help .. I have a server with Bind DNS with Zentyal administer it. The problem I came for a while, is that when configuring a Samba + LDAP client I can login from other servers by IP but not by hostname. For example if the server is called "ServidorITS" and your IP is "192.168.0.33" I can access its IP, but I can access the full name: ServidorITS.midominio.com but not by hostname. Even when I do an nslookup IP to me works ok, but when I do it tells me NXDOMAIN Hostname. Someone can give me a hand? It's really appreciate it!

    Greetings!

    Hello,

    Can you please be more specific with your request? Are you trying to access the mentioned server (ex:192.168.0.33) with ServidorITS without the full domain name in the internal network?

    Please show us your zone file or generate an example similar to it.

    **I'm no expert with BIND DNS Server but I'll try to help with whatever I can.

    Cheers,
    Srj

    DNS does not do short name, I say again DOES NOT DO SHORT NAMES.
    Do a google serach on setting up short names on the system you require this on.
