This worked in Leopard, although since Snowie came along …
I have a Location setup with a DNS server to use [eg 10.0.0.17] , and a search string [eg sub.dom.ain.com]
In the terminal:
$ nslookup cake
So works like a charm. Although if I just the hostname
cake in any other application within OSX - such as Safari/CoRD, they simply can't resolve the hostname. I have to instead use the FQDN
cake.sub.dom.ain.com - why is this so? Why did this work in Leopard and is now broken?
Would love a solution.
