I am running into a rather odd error
when executing cfrun that seems to indicate a hostname lookup failure or
an entry missing from /etc/services.
The hostname is resolvable via dns and
the resolver order on the machines are ordered: hosts, dns. Other programs
that use the resolver libraries are able to resolve the name with no problems(short
name or FQDN).
An entry for cfengine is in /etc/service
associated with port 5308 tcp and udp.
This error only seems to occurs when
using cfrun; it does not occur if cfagent or cfexed is used. Regularly
schedule runs also do not produce the problem.
The problem is occurring on Linux and
I am running version 2.1.7p1 of cfengine
on all platforms.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Following are snips from the logs...(logs
are from client machines)
