A site i work with currently has multiple domains pointing to the same site/ip, and I am looking to drop all but one. We have been brainstorming some ideas, and one is to have certain domain names resolve with the tag:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

WIll that alone stop the indexing of a site in Inktomi, or would we need to have robots.txt as well? Any info would be appreciated.

Looks like do follow noindex.
Nofollow only works for internal pages if i am not wrong.
This page will probably help.
