Error: "Unknown host"
Server does not respond when a ping is issued for short name, fully qualified name or IP address.
|Cause||Server is unable to resolve itself.|
|Resolution||Edit the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to include "hosts: files dns" (Solaris). This can also be defined using "smit" (AIX) and "sam" on HP. |
Verify the RSA ACE/Server is defined correctly in its /etc/hosts file. The correct format is IP address, fully qualified name, then short name.
