Networking :: Nslookup Returning Multiple Names On RedHat With Windows AD

Jun 11, 2010

Recently I installed RedHat Enterprise 5 on a windows machine. The machine is configured to use DHCP, but I have been seeing some strange behavior if I do nslookup on the machine's IP:

[someuser@lin01 mydir]$ nslookup 10.5.x.x
Server: 10.10.x.xx
Address: 10.10.x.xx#53
x.x.5.10.in-addr.arpa name = xyz.something.
x.x.5.10.in-addr.arpa name = lenovo-d1690047.
x.x.5.10.in-addr.arpa name = pqdlds.
x.x.5.10.in-addr.arpa name = lin01.mydomain.com.

Where only the last entry of [URL] is actually correct, how can remove the other entries? I spoke to my IT Manager and he cannot see these stale entries in the DNS (we are using windows AD)

Software :: Windows Computers Can't Resolve Samba Share Names In 10.04

Oct 2, 2010

After upgrading my ubuntu server from 9.04 to 10.04, the window computers couldn't resolve samba shared names anymore, the error code displayed by Windows was 0x80070035.

I was using the ubuntu server as a samba server, using 'share' as the security authentication method, it has been working very well under previous ubuntu versions but, after upgrading to 10.04, the windows computers can't access the server shares anymore; the linux computers don't have any problems (I can access the shares from linux).

As a workaround, I've added the name of the server in c:windowssystem32driversetchosts; but I'd like to know how to fix the problem without modifying every windows computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: NAS Server - Cannot Resolve Non DNS Names

Feb 14, 2010

I have a NAS server running Debian with Dnsmasq (local DNS and DHCP service). This is working well, including fetching upstream requests from my ISP's DNS service and caching them locally. I have another PC not running Ubuntu which happily resolves DNS and non-DNS names. E.g.
Code:
ping hagrid.
ping hagrid
both work.

However, this is not the case on my Ubuntu PC. It is only able to resolve DNS names, not non-DNS names.
Code:
ping hagrid.
works but
Code:
ping hagrid
does not.
I have the standard nsswitch.conf and host.conf.

Networking :: Resolve All Random Server Names?

Apr 9, 2010

I'm confused. Why do I get a response from ping for any scrambled internet server name I type in??The only thing that is necessary is to start with "vvvvvv."(It should be triple W in this post, but I need to do this work around due to the forum rules )And it always resolved to different IPs with similar ping times.What's going on?

Code: > ping vvvvvv.q3g87uv8123907.qt1
PING vvvvvv.q3g87uv8123907.qt1 (80.156.86.78) 56(84) bytes of data.

CentOS 5 Server :: DNS Does Not Resolve Names Except To Localhost

Feb 9, 2010

We installed CentOS 5 at our school and are attempting to get 2 simple DNS servers online. These are simple name resolution servers for our network. We installed the needed caching nameserver packages via Yum and all seems to be well, but for some reason when the server is online, it fails to resolve DNS records except when we direct the requests to its 127.0.0.1 (localhost) interface. As for the server specs, the DNS server is running on a Virtual Machine, and the ESXi server has 2 quad-core Xeon CPU's with 48 Gigs of RAM (in short.. hardware is adequate.)

Here's more details:
When the box boots up, we can confirm that the named service is running and it resolves DNS records when we direct queries to its localhost address:
[root@ns1 ~]# dig hotbot.com @localhost
; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> hotbot.com @localhost
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 55510
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 4, ADDITIONAL: 0 .....
; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> hotbot.com @66.186.176.2
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

What would cause the Named service to not answer DNS queries from the physical IP but only from it's internal IP?

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Clients Lose Ability To Resolve Local Domain Names

Dec 2, 2010

I have an internal domain (dev.lan) for which my Ubuntu server is authoritative. We have a number of subdomains under that domain (test.dev.lan, svn.dev.lan, etc.). The server also acts as the primary DNS server for my office. It was originally set up under Ubuntu 8 and worked great.

However, ever since we upgraded to Ubuntu 10, our Windows clients periodically lose the ability to resolve domains on the dev.lan domain. Internal IP addresses can still be pinged from the Windows machines so it does not appear to be a network-connectivity issue. External domain names continue to resolve without any problems. The only workaround is to restart networking on the Windows clients. It's frustrating because it happens several times a day.

bind9 logs no obvious error messages.

Server :: Using BIND To Resolve Internal Non-FQDN Names

Sep 3, 2009

I have an RHEL5 server running BIND. I'd like to be able to resolve internal, non-FQDN names such as "wiki" for the company internal wiki. in my named.conf file...Named-checkzone returns no errors, and nslookup works when specifying the server explicitly, but no browser resolves the name when entered in the address line. I know this by no means a standard use of BIND, but I'm sure someone out there's pulled this off. I did see when googling someone suggest "load the root zone (.) as master, and add your "hosts" as TLDs, using CNAMEs", but tried that and probably did it wrong since it didn't work.

Server :: Rsync Files And Directories From A RedHat Host To A Windows Server 2003R2?

Jun 9, 2011

I'm trying to rsync files and directories from a RedHat linux host(v 4.5 & 4.7) to a Windows server 2003R2 Standard Edition with cygwin running. I'm executing the rsync command from the cygwin shell. The transfer involves rsync'ing approximately 1 TB of data from the linux server to the windows server. After about 280+GB of data transfer, the transfer just dies.

There seems to be no particular file or directory that the transfer stops at. I'm able to rsync GB's of data from other linux hosts to this cygwin server with no problem. Files and directories rsync fine.The network infrastructure is essentially the same regardless of the server being rsync'ed in that it is GB Ethernet running through Cisco GB switches. There appear to be no glitches or hiccups across the network path.

I've asked the folks at rsync.samba.org if they know of any problems or issues. Their response has been neutral in that if the version of rsync that cygwin has ported is within standards then there is no rsync reason this problem should happen.I've asked the cygwin support site if they know of any issues and they have yet to reply. So, my question is whether the version of rsync that is ported to cygwin is standard. If so, is there any reason cygwin & rsync keep failing like this?

I've asked the local rsync on linux guru's and they can't see any reason this should fail from a linux perspective. Apparently I am our company cygwin knowledge base by default.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Cannot Resolve Names Using DNS

Sep 16, 2010

A while ago I downloaded a VMWare VM for 7.10. I then upgraded it to 8.10 and it was working just fine. I just did the upgrade to 10.04 and I'm having problems with my networking. The really odd thing is that I can ping machines on my local network and out on the Internet by IP address but it will not resolve names using DNS.

I've got the network set up for DHCP. I also tried DHCP address only and manually entered my DNS server addresses but still no luck on resolving names with DNS. At the end of the day, I don't really care if I get this fixed or just get a new VMWare VM. (I can't create one because I only have the player.)

I have set up the gateway, the firewall, and the domain fie, but still no luck.NOTE: When I try DHCP it will work ( it will resolve the DNS of the pages), but since this is a server it requires an static IP.

Fedora Networking :: F13 - Resolve Names On Intranet?

Jun 16, 2010

I have a windows PC and a fedora 13 linux box. When connecting to the linux from windows, I'd like to type the hostname instead of the ip address. Apart from setting the hostname, what do I have to do to publish my hostname on the intranet. (set up a nameserver?)

Though hostname works on the linux box, even this fails: nslookup myhostname Also I'm a newbie. I've tried installing some packages like samba and dhcp, using yum...;service chkconfig... and then checking whether nslookup or nmblookup work with my hostname. But it's just guesswork. Under system -> Administration there is no network option. but it is not clear what package is needed to install it, or whether such a thing is supported in fedora 13. I did try system-config-network, but it has few options none of which pertain to hostname resolution. The fedora manuals dont seem to cover it, at least in recognizable plainspeak to me.

Fedora Installation :: Setup A Cups Printer Server For Windows Machines?

Sep 18, 2010

we are having new printers. At the moment we over 1000 machines on multiple sites but no print server they are manually added on the machine ( I know don't ask).

Anyway there is no way they would let use a windows server so the only option I have is to use linux however I little unsure if it is capable of doing the job I need it to do. Basically I want to add the printers on the linux server either using samba or ipp (I would assume samba would be best).

The reason i want to do this is when we have to do around the machines I just want to go around the machines and just the map the printer and it brings down the driver and config etc as we want them to duplex. The issue is I been trying to gain information on the internet and getting conflicting information apparently I can add the windows driver onto the server so when I map the printer it brings it down. However some guides state you still have through the whole process of adding the printer and then choosing the driver etc. Which kinda of makes it pointless to do the printer server since I would already have to do this anyway if we don't have one.

I just want to go be able to go around the machines and for example click star run and do something like \192.168.1.1printer01 and then it done kind of thing.

Ubuntu Servers :: Get A Samba Server Up And Running To Share With Windows Machines?

Oct 14, 2010

i manged to get a samba server up and running to share with my windows machines. But i still want more. My main goal is to be able to share my movies. I have a laptop hooked to my flat screen with 3TB's of external drives, thats whats acting as my server. I have ubuntu desktop installed because i use it to play movies also.

I'm looking to set up something that is a little faster than samba (yes i no trying to share through USB 2.0 external drives and a wifi connection isn't going to be real fast no matter what) but i want to be able to access my server remotely. like maybe FTP? but what i'm asking here is what protocol should i use and what programs? i was thinking gadmin-proftpd and then filezilla to access?

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Resolve Local Network Names Only

Jul 25, 2010

I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.

I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.

Fedora :: Browsers Don't Resolve Domain Names While Other Programms?

Apr 16, 2010

I'm new here, so please be gentle! I recently installed F12 64 KDE on my Acer Aspire 1810TZ, could connect to the WLAN router but neither the native Konquerer nor Firefox could open any pages...

resolve.conf has the DNS according to DHCP offer, from command line dig properly resolves the name, ping (e.g. google) works, telnet to domain-name on port 80 works, GET too. When using the browser with the domain-name I tells me "Server not found", tcpdump doesn't display any activity. But when I manually change the domain-name with the IP (received by command line dig) then the browser has no problem how do browsers interact with the network resources of the OS?

Ubuntu Networking :: Resolve Local Network Names?

Mar 27, 2010

I'll apologize in advance for I'm sure this has been covered already, but I'm not sure of the search terms to even use to begin solving this problem. I don't know what I don't know.

I have three computers on my home network and want to reach them by their name instead of IP address since their ip is dynamically assigned. I'm using a Linksys WRT54GL router and have noticed that there exists a "DHCP Clients Table" in the router that seems to hold all the necessary information - host names and ip addresses.

How can I get my computers to use that as the lookup table to resolve the host names? And is this even an optimal way of being able to resolve local names?

General :: Get Windows To See Host Names And Vice Versa?

Sep 17, 2011

I have Windows and Linux machines on the same subnet. My router configuration correctly tells me both their machine names, and their IP addresses. However, when I try and ping a Linux machine from a Windows machine, or ping a Windows machine from a Linux machine, I need to use IP addresses rather than names. If I'm pinging a Windows machine from a Windows machine, or a Linux machine from a Linux machine, the machine name correctly resolves without any hosts file entries. Why is this?

I would have thought my router (D-Link DIR-655) would act as a DNS server itself. I see it has an option called "Enable DNS Relay", but from what I've read this won't help me. If it's relevant, the DIR-655 is used for internal traffic, with my ISP's Netgear DGN1000 used as a gateway to the Internet. It's on a different subnet though, and all my machines connect to my DIR-655, not the DGN1000. What do I need to do to have host names automatically resolved within my subnet regardless of the operating system that they're running?

General :: Rsync On Windows To Make It Keep Special Characters In File-names

Sep 2, 2010

We're in the process of implementing an offsite backup of all our servers to a remote Linux server. We're using rsync over ssh.What I've found is that characters such as ±, ¶,´ and £ are replaced on the Linux server with underscores.I don't mind if it changes these characters in the filenames of documents, but when it renames a language pack from Espa±ol.clx to Espa_ol.clx, it could cause issues for us further down the line.

What do I need to do differently to make the special characters copy over correctly? For the initial sync which will take place locally, before the machine is moved offsite, I have SAMBA enabled. I am able to copy files from Windows to the Samba share, retaining the original filename, though it looks different in the Linux directory listing, i.e. têst becomes ƒªstThese files get deleted by rsync when it runs, as it does not match the filenames.
