Re: findns error (NXDOMAIN)

Shalom,

It means you are looking for domain and not getting an answer.

Similar example: nslookup hp.com

If the lookup fails you get no answer.

Check the DNS resolovers in /etc/resolv.conf are reachable and work.

See that /etc/nsswitch.conf configuration uses DNS as a lookup method.
