You have one or more DNS servers in your network. When you take the system name that you have configured in your NetServer iNav stuff and bounce it up against one of these DNS servers it is coming up with that bogus IP address. We added a new lpar called GDIHQ2. We had an old lpar that never got configured registered in the DNS as a different name. Forgot about that until Mimix consultant tried to ping GDIHQ2 and came up with a funky IP address. He rebooted his PC and came up with the right one. Instead of simply relying on the "short term corrective action" I did alert the network people and they found that, yes, we did have GDIHQ2 registered twice, with different addresses. Happy hunting.

See the following reason codes and their meanings: .. 13 - The retrieved host IP address of 188.8.131.52 is invalid. This address not in our network, & not on our iSeries.When I look at Netserver config in Ops Nav - no mention of ip address. The 209 # is a number at our isp - Bellsouth, but not their dns server. Where does Netserver retreive this from? jim franz -- This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l. --This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing listTo post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
