Be sure you have forward and reverse lookups working for the client and server from both the client and server. If this is working, run it with the -d1 switch to get more detailed debugging information.,

Hello All,

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 Solaris alike.
I am running version 2.1.7p1 of cfengine on all platforms.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You.

Following are snips from the logs...(logs are from client machines)
