Description tallen 1999-11-05 15:16:51 UTC
The DNS boxes are running RHL 5.? and forward to the
firewall which proxies an external DNS server.

can I revert to an older bind?

a fully qualified name will work (eg
works while piper does not).

external names (which must be fully qualified) work okay.
(eg works)

What's the search domain set to on the clients where this is

for external hosts bind is doing a forward request. bind does not resolve out of
the /etc/hosts. I think this is a misconfiguration on the bind server. I suggest
you dump the named database and take a look at it (ndc help)
