understood... your nslookup output looked fine to me... it is kinda of different 
in what mine returns but that's likely the DNS package and the configuration 
differences... (see the link below for an example of my results)

i would attempt to go portable by performing a DNS lookup on the address and or 
the given host name... i don't think i would try to use external programs for 
this but would compare my results with theirs for the same lookups...

FWIW: i also just stumbled over our very similar conversation of a year ago...

  13 April 2012 - Resolving a local hostnames to an IP address

(sorry for the wrap)

but this time, you are trying to go the other way i guess... that or just trying 
to get all of the FQDN for the host your app is running on...
