In the NW6.5sp3, this server has hostname, hosts and resolv.cfg I have added
DNS server info. I also added under hosts my dns server info. When I ping my
dns server with hostname dns1 or dns1.abc.com it doesn't resolve but I can
ping to IP.

Please help.

hostname
192.168.21.5 server1.xyz.com

hosts
192.168.21.5 server1.xyz.com server1
192.168.21.251 dns1.abc.com dns1

resolv.cfg
domain xyz.com
nameserver 192.168.21.251


ping dns1 results in check for resolv.cfg and netdb.nlm is loaded.
iptrace results in unknown.


Second question:
if I want to change domain name of the server and make it part of abc.com.
Where do I make necessary changes?

Thanks
Kris
