Thanks Derek - I will do my best. Actuall domain names have been changed to
protect the innocent but the examples are valid.

I work within an envrionment which calls for me to manage linux servers via
ssh.

My box, kubuntu of course, resides in the
foo.company.com<http://foo.company.com>domain. The servers I manage
are on either of the following:
corp.company.net <http://corp.company.net>,
dev.company.net<http://dev.company.net>,
testlab.company.net <http://testlab.company.net> domains.

If I do not edit my resolv.conf file I must use FQDN to ssh to the boxes.

I appreciate any and all help/pointers.

Steve
