Hello All.

I have discovered something which may be the problem...

On the client I want to make my managed node, I cannot do(i.e cannot find
it) a:

nslookup server_IP

But I can do a nslookup server_hostname

Also, on the TMR server side...

I cannot do(i.e. cannot find it) a: nslookup client_IP

But I can do a: nslookup client_hostname

Could this be my problem ???

You didn't mention if you are using DNS or flat file /etc/hosts for name
resolution.  I am using /etc/hosts for name resolution and had exactly the
problem in creating a managed node for a NetView client.  After much
investigation, the solution is to "fake" out Tivoli by copying the
/usr/bin/nslookup command to, say, nslookup.ORIG and then create a fake
file containing the following commands:

echo "Name: <hostname of TMR server.domain.name>"
echo "Address: <ipaddr of TMR server"

In my particular case, the fake nslookup file contains:

echo "Name:  nvhost.hq.giantofmaryland.com"
echo "Address:"

After the install, copy back the original file to the nslookup file.
