I was unable to resolve localhost (127.0.0.1) on my SunOS 4.1.4 which is a
secondary name server. I had compiled my shared libraries and they seemed
to work fine wile rsolving any other name except localhost.
Now the solution, a name server is always primary for localhost. This is
OK. You should define fake zones inorder to succeed this.
What I have done is :
primary LOCALHOST localhost
primary 0.0.127.IN_ADDR_ARPA named.local
put these lines in my named.boot
then in localhost file :
;fake zonefile for LOCALHOST.
@ 604800 IN SOA LOCALHOST. root.virgo.raksnet.com.tr. (
96112505 ; Serial
7200 ; refresh every 2 hours
7200 ; retry every 2 hours
12096000 ; expire in 20 weeks
86400 ) ; minimum
604800 IN NS virgo.raksnet.com.tr.
localhost. IN A 127.0.0.1
These had cured my problem. Thanx to David Pope for his correct answer.
