Linux Client IPC Invalid Hostname or IP Address

Hello

 

I've a problem. It's present only on Linux client.

When I want to select files I want to save with HP data protector Manager or when I launch my backup job I've this error message for all of linux client.

 

 

From: BDA-NET@client-server-linux "/" Time: 20/06/2013 12:49:41
Cannot connect to Media Agent on system MA-Serveur-Backup, port 18000 (IPC Invalid Hostname or IP Address) => aborting.

 

Unexpected close reading NET message => aborting.

 

 

My clients (with disk agent) ping my cell manager and the server with Media agent.

The cell manager ping client with Disk agent and the server with Media agent.

In the host file of the cell manager I've all of my client like this

ip  name   name.domain

 

And in the hosts file for my linux client I've the cell manager and Media agent server like this

IP  cell-manager   cell-manager.domain

IP  MA                      MA.domain

 

For windows it works but not for linux. And I don't understand why.

Re: Linux Client IPC Invalid Hostname or IP Address

Hi,

 

it is a problem with name resolution. Make sure the cell server can be resolved from the client "client-server-linux" - short, full qualified and reverse. Also test using telnet <cell manager> 5555.

 

Best regards

Daniel
