what has resolv.conf to do with the nic hme0?

@OP
check the files:
Code:
/etc/hosts
/etc/hostname.hme0
/etc/netmasks

for correct entries..

If the the hostname.hme0 file is missing you can try:

Code:
ifconfig hme0 plumb
ifconfig hme0 up

his first post quotes that he run your second command every time the server reboots!

Was just spewing standard help desk BS. The important thing is the first command, which ensures that that *.hme0 config is indeed created.
