There is a bug when using the vFiler DR functionality due to the fact the /etc/resolv.conf on the DR vFiler is regenerated on activation. This is confirmed by the fact that on activation of the vFiler DR the /etc/resolv.conf contains the text "#Auto-generated by setup Mon Jan 01 16:21:21 GMT 2010". This results in the domain search order being removed from the /etc/resolv.conf and any hosts not using FQDNs in exports, usermap.cfg fail to resolve.
Is it possible for the NMC plugin to include an option to include the domain search order on the DR vFiler when activating it?
I appreciate this is a workaround and may not be possible.
