I would like to be able to add some hosts (aka aliases for multiply used ip addresses) to the hosts list field pop-up. Since I couldn’t find anything in the documentation, I did some digging around in the file structure and here on the forum, and I finally came to the conclusion that the file in question that needs to be edited is /etc/hosts.
Of course, our security guys don’t want to give me or any of the non-security folks permission to do anything with that file; something about the dangers and evils of misdirected DNS and it being a possible security breach. Our security guy suggested that since it’s “just a file” I find a way to have Cloverleaf point to a different file.
So that is where I am at. We are on AIX and Cloverleaf 5.4 and I am looking for a way to add som hosts to the hosts list without causing some sort of international incident. Can anyone help me?
