RE: [SLUG] Caching Name Server and Internal Hosts


Is it conventional to put the FQDN first (in /etc/hosts) followed by the
unqualified one, ie:
172.30.65.6  moose.awa.com.au moose
or doesn't it matter?

I have read somewhere that sendmail prefers it that way.

What happens if you put the FQDN elsewhere, eg
172.30.65.6  moose mailhost loghost moose.awa.com.au
?

Regards,

Jill.
