Hostname "Unknown"

Hostname "Unknown"

I installed a Standard config of ISEE 3.5 on a HPUX K class server, and when i configured the client it did not pickup the Hostname. I have configured many HPUX servers with no problem. Can anybody tell me what command does ISEE run to get the system Hostname. And how i might rectify this problem? Just to add that the install completed all ok without the Hostname and I can see the Customers system through the CEUI, where it still has hostname as "unknown".

Re: Hostname "Unknown"


Not sure what the problem is, but as a start try comparing the result of uname -n with hostname. Do the values differ?

Take care,
