http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello everybody, I've been trying to make a Fedora Core 11 box to resolve using its hosts file but it just wont. The /etc/hosts file reads: Code: localhost.localdomain localhost server.domain.com server I've checked the /etc/host.conf file and it reads: Code: multi on order hosts,bind And the nsswitch.conf file reads: Code: hosts:      files dns When I run the host `hostname -f` it still shows the DNS IP number and not the address listed on the hosts file: Code: server.domain.com has address aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd Tri (HowTos)
