I received no responses, but starting the "cdsclerk" on the client machine
seems to have resolved the issue.

Subject: DCE nameservice error

We are having a problem with DCE.  Unfortunately, the product was purchased
at another site, those people are all gone now, and we have no maintainence.
(I'm working to correct that last problem. :)  I'm hoping one of you kind
souls has some familiarity with DCE and can point me in the right direction.

Our problem is this: one piece of an application under development is
supposed to register with DCE so that other parts can query it.  However,
when we run the server piece we get the error:

  Warning: sec_login_certify_identity returned 387064051
     host configuration info not available (dce / sec)
  Warning: sec_login_certify_identity returned 0
  Error: rpc_ns_binding_export failed in file: /src/ at line 376.
  DCE Error: Name service unavailable (dce / rpc) 

All I know how to check is that I can do a dce_login.  Does anyone have any
idea what I should be looking at here?

This is a new install (based on sketchy notes from the other site) under
Solaris 7, using NIS & DNS for name services.

It just occurred to me: I believe that the person who installed DCE said
that he had to turn off name services in /etc/nsswitch.conf (that is "hosts:
files" only.)  Could that be a related issue?

Thanks for your help, and I will summarize.
