Two systems does not communicate with each other . Connectivity is fine with all o

Hello All ,

I am facing a strange network problem with two HPUX systems. Those 2 systems does not connect to each other. Both are on the same network . These machines connects to all other systems in network but does not only connect to each other.
System A is physical server & System B is IVM guest. Network Details are as below :-

Hi All.
I have observed one more thing.
If I down & up interface of IVM guest , it works for some time . But after some time approx 30-40 minutes , I again face the same problem.

Hi,

Is there any ping drop/latency between these two machines?

Hi,

This happens using names or IP addresses?

In the case of you are using names, do you have configured at least /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/nsswitch.conf files?

Looking at your routing table on System B ( assuming you tried to say it as system B ), following entry doesn't point to any mtu.

10.238.22.123/255.255.255.255 10.238.23.53 UH 0 lan1 0

Can you correct this ? May be you remove it.
