Hostname set to '-s' after reboot with AIX 4.3.3.0

Hostname set to '-s' after reboot with AIX 4.3.3.0

Post by Alex Robinso » Wed, 23 Feb 2000 04:00:00



Has anyone else had problems with AIX 4.3.3.0 and the hostname after
re-boot? I have recently upgraded two systems to AIX 4.3.3.0 and both
exhibit the same behaviour. One of the systems is even at AIX 4.3.3.0-02.

I have set the hostname via SMIT and when I run 'lsattr -EL inet0' I see the
correct hostname. When I re-boot and then type 'hostname' I get '-s' shown
as the hostname.

And what is the output of 'lsattr -EL inet0' after reboot?

I'm having the same problem on my H50 running AIX 4.3.2-02.   Are you
running HACMP by any chance?  I ask because I've been trying to track down
the problem and I think it's in the harc.net
(harc:2:wait:/usr/sbin/cluster/etc/harc.net # HACMP for AIX network startup)
script.

1. dip says 'set HOSTNAME', but it's set

I'm trying to use the campus' SLIP dial in service.  According to
book, after I dial into the SLIP and get an IP address, I'm supposed
to come back to the local dip prompt and type 'mode SLIP'.  But
everytime I do this, dip responds with something like "set HOSTNAME"
first.  When I check HOSTNAME env variable in the Linux, it's set
to a name I used in the login script.  Anybody know what dip is
trying to get to here?  Thanks for any help
