IP address has changed
- Repairing Invalid Hostname/Nodename
In one instance, the following conditions were present (may or may not apply to all cases)
- IP address had been changed using sam. On reboot, HP-VUE would not come up. Station shows 'Invalid Hostname' Station does not allow telnet, or rlogin, using the nodename.
A check of '/etc/hosts', '/etc/src.sh', and '/etc/netlinkrc', all show normal.
Ran 'set_parms' twice without success.
Finally, with the help of HP supportline, determined that someone had inserted a file named '/etc/resolv.conf'. This file tells the station to ignore its own hosts file, and use the hosts file in the DNS server defined in the '/etc/resolv.conf' file. The stations current configuration must be in the DNS server hosts file. This is not recommended for Advant stations. Rename, or delete the '/etc/resolv.conf' file and the station will act as expected.
System administrators should be informed NOT to include this file on Advant stations.
