IP allocation conflict resolution


Normally in a DNS, only a single name is associated to a given IP. Further, the reverse search is possible allowing one to find the name from the IP. It is sometime convenient (or even necessary) to have more than one name sharing a given IP number. The common case is the default IP associated with a domain. This default IP is generally the IP number of the web server, making it convenient for web users. Linuxconf is trying to flag duplicate usage and help you manage properly your DNS.
