[ubuntu] Local lan DNS suffix resolution problem

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi All, I have been plagued by an annoying DNS issue for a long time and was wondering if anyone has any solutions. Our corporate LAN has a DHCP server which assigns my PC's IPs as well as a domain suffix details. My resolv.conf ends up like this: # Generated by NetworkManager domain aa.domain.local search aa.domain.local nameserver nameserver Problem is as such. When connecting to lan servers I can successfully connect using just the hostname, eg: exchange ping exchange PING (HowTos)
