Love the button.

Just to make sure that I understand the story, the dumbasses' resolve.config files were pointing to the old DNS server trying to get into v120 via hostname instead of new IP all because they didn't update their stupid file?

That is anal!

Yes. And no. Let me explain.

Everything would have worked the first time if:

1.) They had used IP.
2.) They had not changed the IP address of v120 and used hostname.
3.) They had updated the old DNS server with the new IP address.
4.) They had updated the new DNS server with the new IP AND changed the resolv.conf file.
5.) They had updated NIS+ to resolve.

As it was, they failed to do ANY of that, ergo the problem was compounded.

you should have told them to resolve to 127.0.0.1 and see how long it took them to figure it out.

It's my job to ensure that the United States Government runs smoothly. I am a solutions provider.

considering the fact that the government hired people who don't know what they're doing in the first place, wouldn't you say that it's more the case that you're doing damage control?

Good point.
