I couldn’t find the hosts file on my mac. I was used to finding the hosts file on a Linux system at /etc/hosts. They are in another location on a Mac 10.9.

When my OS was upgraded, I had to start typing the FQDN for all of the servers I used for work. I knew it had something to do with /etc/hosts on other Linux machines.
