Summary:

Using the "Go > Connect to Server" method to mount Volumes

The IP address and fully qualified hostname works

afp://192.168.1.1

afp://servername.domain.com

But using the hostname (servername) fails

afp://servername

Description:

If the Fully Qualified Hostname (FQHN) works but the hostname fails, the following steps can be taken to corrrect the problem.

Open System Preferences > Network

Under Search Domains, add your domain name

Example: yourdomain.com

This will allow you to use the hostname instead of having to enter the fully qualified hostname.

Note: You can also use the Network Utility to troubleshoot DNS issues.

Applications:Ultilities:Network Utility

Examples:

Ping: hostname, FQHN, IP Address

Lookup: hostname, FQHN, IP Address
