I have lost my /etc/hosts file on SuSE Enterprise 11.3 64 bit. Is there any way to get the original file back?

  • How did you manage to lose it?

Here is a sample default ip v4 & v6 /etc/hosts :

# Loopback devices
# IPv4 localhost
# IPv6
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

just rewrite it from scratch. Unless you had lots of modifications, its usually only a few lines. localhost will usually be enough.
