Strange resolver behavior in oneiric

Asked by Gustavo Berman on 2011-10-21

Recently installed 11.10, fresh install.

/etc/resolv.conf is configured ok:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
domain cabib.local
search cabib.local
nameserver 10.73.2.102
nameserver 10.73.2.101
nameserver 10.73.2.100

I do a:

dig cabtes7.cabib.local

; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> cabtes7.cabib.local
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 30126
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;cabtes7.cabib.local. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
cabtes7.cabib.local. 3600 IN A 10.73.16.22

;; Query time: 9 msec

;; WHEN: Fri Oct 21 15:14:45 2011
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 53

The response is ok.

But if I try to ssh or ping I cannot resolv!

ssh <email address hidden>
ssh: Could not resolve hostname cabtes7.cabib.local: Name or service not known

ping cabtes7.cabib.local
ping: unknown host cabtes7.cabib.local

If I ssh or ping using IP address, the response is ok:

ping 10.73.16.22

Any ideas?

Could add the resolution in /etc/hosts I guess. SSHing as root isn't hugely wise
