I have serveral DNS Zones. I am having problems pingining short names on a couple of my 6.5 SP7 servers. I have added A and CNAME records in DNS. I applied the proper DNS suffixes to DNS on all of my servers in INETCFG IP settings, along with the DNS IPs for name lookup. But a couple of my servers running NAMED can NOT ping short names, even with the proper configs, while others running NAMED I can.

One fix was to SP5 to SP7 and run DSREPAIR. But this did not work on two of my servers. I found that if I unload NAMED, I can ping short names, but not if NAMED is loaded.

Is there a fix? I am searching TIDS and having a hard time seeing a fix.
