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.

Subject: need to look up short names

Hi All,

Fedora 26

I am stumped.   I need to be able to look up short names on my local network.

Long names work:

# host is an alias for has address

But not short names:

# host pop3
Host pop3 not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

My look like this for pop3:
FedoraServer            A
pop3                    CNAME   FedoraServer

What am I missing?

Many thanks,
