APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Although BIND accepts a search list of up
    to 1024 characters, it only uses the first
    six domain names in the list.
    
    This limit affects all applications that use
    DNS name resolution, including the AIX host
    command.  It also applies even if IZ10638
    is installed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

    domain in search list.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been changed such that BIND uses 1024 characters
    in search list.
