Solaris 9, /var/spool/clientmqueue/

Hi, We have some 2-3 Solaris 9 servers with the following issue.

For every cron job which has email notifications, it is sending the emails, but it create files at /var/spool/clientmqueue/ which has similar contents.

MDeferred: Connection refused by []
${daemon_flags}c u
MDeferred: Connection refused by []
H?P?Return-Path: <g>
H??Received: (from root@localhost)
        by (8.12.10+Sun/8.12.10/Submit) id o3FKB0Nm021065
        for root; Thu, 15 Apr 2010 16:11:00 -0400 (EDT)
H?D?Date: Thu, 15 Apr 2010 16:11:00 -0400 (EDT)
H?F?From: Super-User <root>
H?x?Full-Name: Super-User
H?M?Message-Id: <>
H??To: root
H??Subject: Output from "cron" command
H??Content-Type: text
H??Content-Length: 237

Anybody has a idea why this happening ?

Others Solaris 8 and 10 servers are just fine.

Network Sun Solaris 2.6 issues

I am Srinidhi - Manager - EDP Beml BC
We are facing a problem in our Sun Ultra 1 server with Sun Solaris 2.6 O/s.
The Backup media (DAT Drive) is on Main Sun Server. There is a Sun Client also running on solaris o/s. The backup has to be taken on Main server. Both are pinging. but we are unable to take backup data on client-1. All COBOL Programs are on Client-1. Data in Server. Cobol programs are not running from client. Often, the IP address on both are same and are not able to change address. We have to take backup to format and re-install O/s. Can I expect an expert solution Please.
