Question UNIX Backup Exec Agent Error

Hello,

When launching a recently installed UNIX agent for my Veritas backup exec server I receive "getservbyname (grfs, tcp) failed!"

I have checked to make sure the service exists under port 6101 and its there. I also removed and recreated the service but still no go. Smilie Smilie

Does anyone have any idea what may be wrong here? I have run out of tricks.

Any thoughts is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Is your namservice correctly configured...host file/dns or whatever you're using?
