I have two systems, both running Ubuntu 12.04, which are within the same network (connected by hubs without routing logic). Both systems are configured quite similar, but not identical. In particular, the command
route gives the identical results on both system.
Within the network a windows server is operating by a name
winshared. One Linux system work resolving the IP:
> nslookup winshared Server: 127.0.0.1 Address: 127.0.0.1#53 Name: winshared.somepc.xx Address: 172.16.0.110
while the other Linux system fails with
> nslookup winshared ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

The content of
/etc/resolv.confis identical on both systems with the content:
