I've got an issue where hosts defined in my /etc/hosts are not being  
resolved.  I've looked at resolv.conf, host.conf and nsswitch.conf and  
everything looks ok.  It's my understanding that with the below  
configurations, /etc/hosts should be used first then DNS.  Correct?   
This is a 6.1 system.

host# cat resolv.conf
local	domain	
nameserver	x.x.x.x

cat host.conf
# Auto-generated from nsswitch.conf, do not edit

host# cat nsswitch.conf
group: compat
group_compat: nis
hosts: files dns
networks: files
passwd: compat
passwd_compat: nis
shells: files
