I get an email that basicly says there is a problem with the dns setup and there is no entry in the /etc/hosts/ file for the host name and that it resolves to nothing.

Yet when I look at the /etc/hosts file on the server it has the servers IP and the hostname listed.

This occured recently when I changed the resolvers on the server to something other than the local DNS. Do I need to put an entry in the other servers /etc/hosts file for this server?

Contact your Data Center and ask them for the Resolver IPs and update /etc/resolver file with these IPs.
