In a host file I can setup a short or long name and have it resolve to an IP
address.

example:

10.1.1.1 gateway gateway.company.com

On my NW 6.0 SP4 server I have created a "company.com" zone and have created
an "A" record called gateway. I can ping "gateway.company.com", but not
"gateway". In the example above I can ping either the long or short name.

I need to be able to ping the short name. Using Micro$oft's DNS server I
can ping the short name. Is there a way to use the short name on a Novell
DNS server?

Thanks
