Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-09-21 10:16:14 EDT
For a TUI server install on a XP1000/667, the /etc/hosts file is not
properly initialized.

This system has an ethernet card and static ip addresses were specified and
did initialize properly during bootup.  However, the /etc/hosts file only
had one line for with all names assigned/
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-09-29 12:21:03 EDT
The installer will only put  a hostname in the /etc/hosts file if it was able to
do a reverse name lookup on the
static IP address you entered. Is this the case?

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2000-10-04 17:13:58 EDT
Nope, no entry in dns yet -- I was building the system.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-06 17:50:47 EDT
I will link this to our bug entry related to this problem.
