I am running OSX Lion.
I've looked all over the web for solutions to the issue I'm having and can't find a fix. I've found several entries where uses are trying to resolve custom_hostname.dev (etc, etc), but I'm actually trying to use the search domains for FQDN. I do not have access to the DNS systems, so my system is assigned some DNS server IPs, but I have to manually set all the search domains for some of the hosts. For example:
search loc1.sitea.example.net, loc2.sitea.example.net, loc1siteb.example.net
Let's say host
mytesthost is in
loc2.sitea.example.net. I would have expected that when I type in
mytesthost, that it would search the search domains and resolve an IP, however, in order for this to work, I actually have to type in
The "error" I get is "unknown host", which tells me that it is not resolving the hostname.
