MaryLou: Management Central (MGTC) seems very touchy about TCP/IP configuration. It apparently wants things to be exactly correct and isn't very forgiving when common variations are used. The single biggest item seems to be the relationship between the iSeries host/domain setting and the entry for the system in the host table (or possibly the appropriate DNS entry). >From option 12 (Change TCP/IP domain information) of the CFGTCP menu, note the >fully qualified name of your system (e.g., as400host.domainname.com). Then >check option 10 (Work with TCP/IP host table entries) and look at the entry >for your system's IP address. The host table entry allows multiple host names to be associated with an IP address. People often put in both as400host and as400host.domainname.com as alternative names. There's nothing exactly wrong with this, but it seems to be a problem for MGTC and maybe one or two other server applications. The problem seems to be that MGTC looks only at the first host name specified for each IP address to see if it's the entry for the configured qualified host name. It doesn't recognize any aliases. So make certain that as400host.domainname.com is the first one for your IP address. If you also want to use as400host, just make sure it comes second or later. The entry would look similar to: 10.0.1.2 as400host.domainname.com as400host I'm not sure if TCP/IP _must_ be ended and restarted before MGTC will see this change, but MGTC won't run without this setting. And note that all of this is guesswork based on general experience from seeing what has worked in the past; I can't point to any explicit documentation.
