nslookup and ping issues
01-16-2017 11:19 AM
We are joining linux machines to a windows domain. nslookup and ping of windows machines in the domain fail unless I use the FQDN of the windows machines. I am sure it is just a config issue, however I have not been able to resolve. Any help would be appreciated!

Note that this is not a Centrify issue but a general DNS question.
To ping by short name, you need to make sure that the AD domain suffix is added to your /etc/resolv.conf using the proper directive (domain or search). Depending on your UNIX/Linux version there are other places to specify this.

After making sure that there was a domain listed in the resolv.conf (search
mydomain.ad) by modifying the base file and regenerating the file, things
are working as expected and are persistent after a restart.
Thanks for your help!
