Re: Network faliure error in selftest

Chances are the failed address is (i.e. localhost). This means that your DNS is not properly setup. If you're not using DNS, then run the following command:

NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/

If this command indicates that resolves to localhost, then you're fine. If you cannot resolve to localhost and vice versa, then this must be fixed. You must either make sure this mapping exists in DNS (both A and PTR records), or you must add an entry to the appropriate system hosts file.

Re: Network faliure error in selftest

If is in your hosts file, then you can ignore the error in selftest. I cannot tell you how to fix your DNS since I do not know what DNS server you are using. All I can tell you is you need to add proper A and PTR records for and localhost.
