Ubuntu and (dot).local addresses – Avahi

I have a Ubuntu server where there was a problem with .local address, i could’t look up the zone from the server.
After a little search i found that Avahi (Zeroconf) was the problem.

The default setup of Avahi, is to look for the zone in mDNS, if that failed the resolv failed.

So to fix this, edit /etc/nsswitch.conf
