Appending suffixes to short names to make them legal DNS names, is considered the responsibility of the *client*, not the *server*.
Look up “resolver search list” (more Unix-ish/Linux-ish) or “suffix search list” (more Windows-ish), and you should find some useful information. - Kevin From: bind-users [mailto:bind-users-boun...@lists.isc.org] On Behalf Of toddandmargo Sent: Thursday, August 10, 2017 8:21 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: need to look up short names Hi All, Fedora 26 bind-chroot-9.11.1-2.P2.fc26.x86_64 I am stumped. I need to be able to look up short names on my local network. Long names work: # host pop3.xxx.local pop3.xxx.local is an alias for FedoraServer.xxx.local. FedoraServer.xxx.local has address 192.168.255.12 But not short names: # host pop3 Host pop3 not found: 3(NXDOMAIN) My hosts.xxx look like this for pop3: FedoraServer A 192.168.255.12 pop3 CNAME FedoraServer What am I missing? Many thanks, -T
