Add a new server host to the DNS


I created a new test server host running RH AS3 (orahost.med.com), and need help on how to add the server to the DNS which is also running another server on RH AS3 (backupserv.med.com).

On the test server:
1)
# nslookup orahost.med-eng.com
Server: 10.0.33.17
Address: 10.0.33.17#53

** server can't find orahost: NXDOMAIN
2)
# ping orahost.med-eng.com
ping: unknown host orahost.med-eng.com

please help!

So you want to manually set the DNS, right? /etc/resolv.conf, nameserver "ip.ad.dr.ess". Is that what you were looking for?

Actually, I have added this to
/etc/resolve.conf

# more /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 10.0.33.17 < this is our DNS (backupserver.med.com)
domain med-eng.com
search med-eng.com

2)
# host 10.0.33.17
17.33.0.10.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer backupserver.med.com.

Have you placed orahost in the configuration on 10.0.33.17?
