Hi,

I'm getting this email daily:

Your hostname (***************) could not be resolved to an
IP address. This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly,
and/or there is no dns entry for ****************. Please be
sure that the contents of /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and
also that there is a correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone
file.

...

hostname, dig, ping work fine.
/scripts/ipcheck --verbose also returns OK.

I also tried /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig, but I'm still getting this email.

Actually everything seem to work fine, so why am I getting this ?

Hello :)

You mentioned the following command completes without error:

Code:
# /scripts/ipcheck --verbose
That indicates there are no active issues with the hostname resolving to an IP address. Please check to see if the email you are receiving is coming from another server, or if it's simply an older email that is only recently getting delivered.

Thank you.
