Description mike 2000-05-11 17:38:12 EDT
if /etc/resolve.conf contains:
 search x.foo.com y.foo.com foo.com

and the host bar.foo.com is searched for via `nslookup bar', the search

if the line is modified to:
  search x.foo.com y.foo.com foo.com bogus.com

it works and resolves to `bar.foo.com'

I cannot duplicate this behavior: I've tried adding and deleting several
different domain entries, inside and outside of my local domain.

Are you sure you didn't have a typo in your domain entry?
Comment 2 Henri Schlereth 2000-07-12 18:50:44 EDT
Unable to duplicate this as well. As I would quote from the bind users-list "If you conceal the actual domain/machine names
we cannot even begin to help you or duplicate the error"

The normal accepted format for resolv.conf should be:
domain foo.com
search foo.com
