SUMMARY: dns on solaris

From: Gerhard den Hollander (

Question: [abbreviated]

nslookup works,
but telnet, ftp and all can not do hostname resolving,
what did I do wrong ?

edit /etc/nsswitch.conf entry for hosts

It should look *something* like:

files nis dns

If dns is not there, the resolver will not search DNS.

Thansks to the (sofar) 7 people who gave the correct answer (and I haven't
even received my question back from the list)
