Recently had a problem where i couldn’t resolve any of our internal “.local” domain names. The weird thing was I could add a dns search to resolve.conf and resolve it by pinging the host name, but anytime I tried to use the fdqn it would fail
Turns out the problem is the avahi-daemon. This can be disabled by editing
and changing the AVAHI_DAEMON_START to 0.
Then you can remove the rc scripts with the following command:
sudo update-rc.d -f avahi-daemon remove
