We have an application that references the database connection via a common alias, let's say
datatier, and futher that alias is generally stored in the HOSTS file. However, it's not in the HOSTS file on this server I'm working with.
- Where else could the alias be stored?
- Is there a way I can determine the IP anyway?
P.S. -- I've tried running an
nslookup datatier to determine the IP address but that didn't work.
