In Redhat 7.1, the "search" directive in /etc/resolv.conf seems not to
work beyond the first domain. I have an /etc/resolv.conf file:
search chicago.user.biz tampa.user.biz
and /etc/nsswitch.conf set to use dns before files.
On all versions of Slackware, Debian, and earlier Redhat (updated 6.2?)
I have no problems with this working as documented. However, in Redhat
7.1 it just flat doesn't look past the first domain of the "search"
The client would rather use Redhat, but they really want to just type
the name of the node and have the system track the subdomain,
particularly since some may move between locations, but the names are
guaranteed to be unique (by executive direction).
Can someone point to which feature Redhat has "enhanced" so I can get
this working? I have already remove their broken nslookup and replaced
it with one built from source, what else needs to be fixed?
