globalprotect user hostname lookup from inside lan

I am not able to resolve hostname (mac and Linux only) for users on GPVPN. 

Eg. I am in the Data Center LAN and when I try to ping, nslookup or ssh into a VPN user machine via hostname, the name doesn't resolve at all. 

Same thing works fine when user switch connection from GP to Cisco Anyconnect. 

The only difference that I can see when on Cisco is the domain name is being added in /cat/resolve.conf whereas with GP, I only see then nameserver and search for the DNS suffixes. 


Do you guys if there's a workaround to fix it?
