My workplace has an intranet with domain names like
server02.foo.local, etc. I recently booted the Fedora 16 live environment to test it out and discovered that these domain names do not resolve.
$ ping server01.foo.local
ping: unknown host server01.foo.local
$ ping server01
PING server01.foo.local (X.X.X.X) …
server01 resolve (and print the name as
server01.foo.local will not?
