Hi all,

	The right solution was provided by many people.  Actually it is
an harmless error.

	The simplest solution was to put fully qualified domain name in
/etc/hosts file like   sun450e02
( First one should definitely be IP address,  second and third fields
can be any one of short name and FQDN)

	Previously in my /etc/hosts it had only IP address and short
Name, hence the error message.

	Some people also suggested to check out DNS server
connection/configuration. ( /etc/resolv.conf  and /etc/nsswitch.conf )
	Another solution is to put entry of domain name in

Thanks to following people for showing me the way to solutions.

Hi friends,

	One of our Sun servers,   keeps on giving this message on
Console :

May  8 18:21:00 sun450e02 sendmail[6792]: unable to qualify my own
domain name (sun450e02) -- using short name

	Can anybody tell me whether it has any serious implications ?
Any way to resolve this ?
	Anyway, it has not given any problems in any way till date.
