I have the following setup (in a non-routable network):

machine A: cfengine master, no DNS, all hosts that might connect
          are listed in /etc/hosts, /etc/resolv.conf doesn't exist.
machine B: cfengine client, DNS-Server for some zones, no access to
          any other DNS servers, all hosts it needs to know are listed
          in /etc/hosts, no /etc/resolv.conf exists.

On each startup, cfagent delays for some seconds if the DNS server (which doesn't have a ROOT zone file or access to other DNS servers) is running. If the DNS server isn't running, the delay doesn't occure.

What strikes me is how cfagent can be influenced by a local running DNS server which isn't even referenced anywhere.

Any hints?

        What's the difference between the /etc/nsswitch.conf files?
