I recently upgrade NW 5.0 sp6a to NW 6.5 sp2. I couldnt ping by name before
the upgrade and I still cant. Resolv.cfg is configured to point to my 2
Microsoft 2003 dns servers. The version of ping is 4.32b. I do not want
to add entry to host file because if IP address changes I want it to
dynamically update.

However, brand new install of nw 6.5 sp2 with the same resolv.cfg file
works fine.

Can anyone help me as to why the upgrade box wont work?

here is contents of resolv.cfg

domain ocean.lan

Thanks in advance.
