You have to check the hosts file on the rsh server side, not only on the client one.
More generally, the hosts must be correctly set in a configured backend database, that might be files, DNS, NIS, ldap depending on the configuration. Nothing ugly there.

Weak permissions on hosts.equiv (not sure about .rhosts) might also cause the issue.

In any case, rlogin is doomed and ssh should be installed and used instead.

Well, these two are test systems. I installed the OS myself on them. They have only ldap. The DNS and NIS are not set-up or configured! Could that be a reason?

They don't have only ldap, they likely also have local files set for naming backend databases.

Missing client entry in the problem server might indeed be a reason why rlogin prompts for a password.

Alright. Thanks jlliagre. I've got to check thoroughly then, after I get back to work.

/etc/hosts.equiv, .rhosts all have the network info, they look fine but system1 is still asking for a passwd from system2 if I do rlogin. I'm stuck and don't know how to proceed from here!

When logged from system2 to system1, run the "who am i" command and post its output.

Is it supposed to show system1 because I remotely logged into system1??
Even from system1, If I rlogin to system2 I get similar info
