Question can't ping any host with .local at the end of FQDN


Hi!

I have an opensuse 10.3 box in windows network (with win2003 + AD).
There is DNS server on windows server servicing all hosts in network (and forward requests to Internet too).

All windows hosts has names in domain "ourcompany.local".

Well... all is well, except... :-)
I can't ping any windows host from suse-box, but host and nslookup commnads resolve this hosts names.
Any external host names (.com, .net, any other) resolves ok by all commands.

Ping is not only a problem, postfix can't resolve too.

I'd try some configurations edits in named.conf, resolv.conf, but nothing hepls.

Any thoughts?

Yours,
Dmitry

Just a quick check, you didn't mention your host file. Have you tried manually entering the full name in your host file and testing?

have you tried changing your hostname from 'name' to 'name.ourcompany.local' ?

it's empty now.
initially there was one string:

nameserver 192.168.2.1

this is an address of windows server with DNS service.
I'd install bind on suse-box later (in cache mode) and add string for localhost to resolv.conf

you could also try to add
Code:
search ourcompany.local
to your resolv.conf file if i'm not mistaking. if you do ping name, it will automaticly add ourcompany.local to the hostname to create a fqdn

I'd tried this - no result.
