check /etc/nsswitch.conf

i place dns in front of mdns4_minimal and remove the [NOTFOUND=return] 
on any machine because otherwise my vmware.local would not work

[root at srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /etc/nsswitch.conf
# Valid entries include:
#       nisplus                 Use NIS+ (NIS version 3)
#       nis                     Use NIS (NIS version 2), also called YP
#       dns                     Use DNS (Domain Name Service)
#       files                   Use the local files
#       db                      Use the local database (.db) files
#       compat                  Use NIS on compat mode
#       hesiod                  Use Hesiod for user lookups
#       [NOTFOUND=return]       Stop searching if not found so far
