Hello all,

Almost all whom replied to me pointed out that there might be a problem in resolv.conf or nsswitch.conf.

I ran the commands of 'nslookup' and 'getent' to check them. The outputs looked ok.

The real problem is that there was a colon missing in hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. This was checked out by Mr. Gary Mills working on computer services on UM campus.

The previous hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf looked like this,

      hosts dns [NOTFOUND=return] files

Now it looks like
      hosts: dns [NOTFOUND=return] files

Thanks to

Mr. Gary Mills

Subject: rlogin problem

Hello everyone,

I have a machine running solaris 2.6 with nis setting. The nis sever is running solaris 2.4. I can do rlogin to any machines within local-domian by using IP addresses or nicknames.

The problem I have is that I couldn't do rlogin to machines outside local-domain with nicknames given in the file of /etc/hosts (I can do rlogin to machines outsides local-domain by using IP address.).

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
