IV67727: BIND ONLY USES THE FIRST SIX DOMAINS IN SEARCH LIST APPLIES TO AIX 7100-03
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
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.
For hostnew and host -n command, BIND uses the first six domain in search list.
Code has been changed such that BIND uses 1024 characters in search list.
