    Default /etc/hosts file in openSUSE

    I have a few questions about /etc/hosts file in openSUSE and zimbra requirements

    the default in opensuse is

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.11 server03.sienic.site server03

    the zibra requirements is

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.1.11 server03.sienic.site server03

    the question is can I use the form

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.11 server03.sienic.site server03
    127.0.0.2 server03.sienic.site server03

    which is automatically setup by yast selecting the option yast-network settings - host/DNS - Assign Hostname to Loopback IP


    the other question is, in dns the mx record is mail.sienic.site with A record mail 192.168.1.11, but in the hosts file opensuse setup the real hostname of the server in the hosts file as follow:

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.11 server03.sienic.site server03

    instead of

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.11 mail.sienic.site mail

    in this scenario what would be the correct form of the hosts file?
