Summary0014206: `yum search all nslookup` fails to find bind-utils, same with dig and nsupdate. Will find when looking for host.
DescriptionRecently needed to troubleshoot some networking issues on a brand new CentOS7 installation, so of course i needed the basics such as host, nslookup, and dig. I did not remember which package they were in, but was shocked yum could not find it.

$ `yum clean all`
$ `yum search all nslookup`
Warning: No matches found for: nslookup
No matches found
Steps To ReproduceInstall a new system or run the same from a 2 year old CentOS7 system.

$ `yum search all nslookup`
$ `yum search all dig | egrep -i bind'
$ `yum search all host | egrep -i bind`
bind.x86_64 : The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) DNS (Domain Name System)
bind-utils.x86_64 : Utilities for querying DNS name servers
Tagsbind-utils, yum

That's not what yum search is used for, you needed e.g. yum provides '*/nslookup' not yum search.
