I'm seeing this syslog message on 2 solaris database machines:
netstat: gethostbyaddr: fp01.blah.com. != 10.1.0.2
The hostname fp01.blah.com resolves to 10.1.0.1 so the error is a true
statement, but why is the machine expecting it to resolv to 10.1.0.2?
And what process is reporting this error? I don't have any daemons
running called "netstat", and when I issue the netstat command in
various forms both with and without the "-n" option, it doesn't
generate any syslog messages. Also there is no host entry for
fp01.blah.com in the hosts file and dns resolution works perfectly.
hosts: files dns
So the only source for name/address information on fp01.blah.com
should be from dns, which returns 10.1.0.1... Anyone have a clue
where this message is coming from?
