Linux: Local domain addresses are not resolving in Ubuntu

In Ubuntu 14.04 local domain addresses are not resolving properly.  nslookup and dig commands work.  This is because they use a different process to query DNS information.  To fix the issue you need to modify /etc/nsswitch.conf

Replace:
hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

with:
hosts: files dns
