I have checked the resolv.conf also, its having following directive
nameserver 192.168.10.1 (server ip)
Any suggestion how to resolve this
Is that 192 address the address of the NAMESERVER, or of your new machine?? And unless you've put a record into your internal DNS server to resolve that address back to a name, you won't be able to dig or look it up by name. Same as any other OS...you've got to build the server, then put the record into DNS. If you're just wanting to do it locally, then put an entry into your /etc/hosts file for your system...you can then ping the hostname, since it will resolve (usually), from hosts file first, then DNS.
And since you're using RedHat Enterprise Linux...CALL REDHAT FOR SUPPORT
, since you're paying for it, right?
