Sometimes I find that some Ubuntu installations don’t have the
dig command available:
[chris@work ~]$ dig +short example.com -bash: dig: command not found [chris@work ~]$
The solution is to install the
dnsutils package. For example:
[chris@work ~]$ sudo apt-get install dnsutils Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Suggested packages: rblcheck The following NEW packages will be installed: dnsutils 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/147 kB of archives.
