Why do I only have 6 search domains in my cluster? I have defined plenty more!
If you keep adding search domains via the partition base entry or otherwise, and there are already 6 in resolv.conf, you will run into a hardcoded limit of the default linux system.
Linux by default defines a maximum of 6 search domains in resolv.conf in the default /usr/include/resolv.h file:
# define MAXDNSRCH 6 /* max # domains in search path */
You’re probably better off forcing FQDN use, using separate resolv.conf files for separate domains.
