IP resolver library configuration settings...

Does anyone know if it's possible to alter the resolver library settings in
Netware the way that /etc/host.conf does under *nix?

I'm having an issue where I need to try to resolve the non-fqdn name of a
server to an ip address and each time that I tell it ping server, I get a
ping of server.domain.name.

Specifically, I'm looking for the equivalent entry of:

order hosts, bind

in the /etc/host.conf file of bind.

Thanks,
--Robert

Take a look at the sys:etc\nwswitch.conf file - from memory it is self
documenting in how to change name resolver order.
