looks to me like your name resolution doesn't work. Please check /etc/hosts and/or do nslookup

Kind regards

I noticed same thing but after some unsuccessful operation on NIM client. DNS resolving works fine. Try to add some client and perform NIM operation (mksysb, install etc.) just to check this value.
