Name Resolution Problem in Indigo2 Impact 10000

Post by Patrick Ho » Sat, 21 Feb 2004 12:47:57


I have loaded a base install of 6.5 on my Indigo2. I have all the files
that I thought I needed configured, but I have no name resolution. I can
get to the machine and I can get out by IP address, but not by name. I have
my nameservers set in resolv.conf, I have my networks file set, I have
resolution order set to DNS, Files, None. I have my default route set.
Very strange. I have set up about 100 Indys and I have never had this
problem. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!!

Could this be the network card? I just loaded a 250MHz 4400 Indigo2 Impact
and the network works great. Hmmm...

Hi


Have you tried re-installing all the network stuff again? I had a
similar problem with Insight, and this fixed it. Dunno why.

I had another similar problem - when I set the host resolution order
to DNS, Files, None, and rebooted, it would always revert to something
else (can't remember what, probably NIS, DNS, Files) so that it didn't
work. Dunno what I did to fix that - just one day it started working
so I left it!

Yeah. It works now. I just kept doing what i was doing before and It just
decided to start working. Strange. I have left it alone since then and it
works great! Thanks for the input. TTYL
