DNS for local items with no .localdomain


I have some items that require a host name of AvayaCallServer for resolution. The device can't have a domain affiliation and niether can the AvayaCallServer. How do I set this up in DNS so that any reference to AvayaCallServer routes to 192.168.3.17?

Thanks.
Tim.

Adding this line to /etc/hosts should do it.

192.168.3.17 AvayaCallServer

The location of hosts may vary with you distro.

Did that, but for some reason Bind isn't picking it up. I also verified in named.conf that it use files first. Additional thoughts?

Regards.
Tim.

I am glad I used the word "should" and not "will"

This is not my area of expertise but does bind look at the hosts file? I ask that as, like most people, I do not run a DNS server but we do connect to hosts in the hosts file. I thought it looked in hosts and only then referred to bind if necessary.

Sorry, that is as good as I can do.

No problem. I'm kind of in the same boat you are. Thanks for the reply.
