pSeries and AIX Information Center

You need to do an nslookup on your IP address and see if the reverse lookup (IP address to name) is working.

bash-2.05a# nslookup
Default Server:



> exit

It seems you might have the "AIX getnameinfo" bug that is discussed in Google searches on AIX getnameinfo, as frank_rizzo mentioned earlier.

I don't know if it is the "only way" but it seems like the logical best next step, considering all the good troubleshooting you have done and the available info on the net.....

For example, see this post:

You could try to recompile:

That will work, but it may be easier to define BROKEN_GETADDRINFO, eg
"./configure --with-cflags=-DBROKEN_GETADDRINFO". That's effectively
what configure already does on systems known to have broken implementations
of the getaddrinfo family of functions (eg AIX 4.3.3 and early maintenance
levels of 5.1 and 5.2).

you should really upgrade anyways. 5.1 is pretty old and probably unsupported.
