nslookup/ping resolve problem 11i v3

view full story

http://www.unix.com – I am having a problem with a new server build that has got me completely baffled. This server has a private back end network so the way it is supposed to work is that the server thinks its ip address is but the rest of the world knows it as per DNS. It has to be this way for the application to install. The problem is that nslookup from this server shows that it is using files correctly and resolves to the 10. address as it should. But when I try to ping by hostname from this same server it pings the 199. address. We have other HP-UX servers set up exactly this sam (HowTos)
