Still need assistence :-(
Lets say I define a config/package_config/MACHINE (ony with some extra 
and I want all machines called "clientXX" use this additional class.
Then I edit 50-host-classes in config/class like this:

assuming the host client50 is rechable/resolved (by pinging it).
Than I have to run e.g this:
" fai-chroot -IFv client50 "

->but I get 'fai-chboot: unknown host'

what am I missing (most likely missing some knowledge on my side)

Thanks again
