We just upgraded various machines to Solaris 2.6 and have had a
problem crop up.
Basically, when a machine with no DNS entry tries to connect via TCP
to any of the Sol2.6 machines one of two things happen:
1. Takes a LONG time to connect if it's on the local network
2. Doesn't connect at all if it's not on the local network
Any machine that has a DNS entry has no problems connecting to the
machines. This problem is affecting everything that uses TCP (pop3,
http, telnet, ftp, etc.)
I've administered Solaris and other unices and have not come up
against anything like this except perhaps on FreeBSD where it would
not let you log on if you didn't have an appropriate reverse-lookup.
Has anyone else had this problem with Solaris 2.6? If so, how did you
clear it up, work around?
thanks much.. !
