DNS problems.

Unread postby semi-fly » Wed Jul 23, 2003 7:55 am

I recently upgraded to Xbow 1.3 and I'm having problems resolving DNS. I can ping any system on the network, mount nfs shares, ssh into the fileserver, but DNS does not seem to be working. I rember a thred about clearing DNS cache or resetting DNS, but I can't seem to locate it...

Speaking of xbows.... can one obtain these ONLY with a chassis or as seperate entities? The whole thing is that I haven´t yet completely dis and reassembled my Octane as I usually do with all my gear... gotta get down to that.

resolvers...

Unread postby orbital » Fri Jul 25, 2003 12:26 pm

Just a quicky I found out after I set-up bind9 on a linux box; all boxes I tried could use the nameserver except any of my IRIX boxen. The reason, reverse mapping. Once you set-up the reverse mappings the IRIX boxen started using the resolver.

My lazy set-up of a nameserver, but a gotacha anyway.

Host Resolution Order

Unread postby adi » Sun Jul 27, 2003 12:48 am

Hey,

Im having a similar problem. I did a fresh install of Irix about a week ago, and I cannot change the host resolution order from NIS, DNS, Files. Everytime I change it in the Network Setup Dialog, I reboot and its back to the original order. Its really annoying as my computer currently takes 5 minutes to boot up, much longer than my Indigo2!

Do you think the nsadmin restart command would help neko?
