Re: query

this is a sendmail thing.

There is one solution that I prefer, in your /etc/hosts add a hostname alias with your hostname followed by a .

ie

1.2.3.4 hostname hostname.

or:
see Jean-Louis' response in this message:

Re: query

Issue with FQDN. (Fully qualified domain name)

Add alias for host.

xxx.xxx.xx.xx hostname hostname.you.com.

Re: query

You can either follow Bill's suggestion to make an entry in the /etc/hosts file.

If that is from sendmail you can also edit the /etc/mail/sendmail.cw file

This file should contain entries all the possible names that this host might by known.

there you can specify like

hp
hp.com


Then just restart the sendmail so that those messages are prevented in future.

/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

1. vi /etc/hosts
ex:
1.2.3.4 myhost. myhost.mydomain.com
2.vi /etc/resolv.conf
domain mydomain.com

3.vi /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files [NOTFOUND=continue UNAVAIL=continue] dns [NOTFOUND=return UNA
