Resolution

Solution #1
If the /etc/hosts file has:
127.0.0.2 <FQDN of the server> <DN of the server>
 
Change that line to read:
<Servers IP> <FQDN of the server> <DN of the server>
 
Example:
10.1.1.100 FS1.company.com FS1
 
After saving the change:
rcnovell-named start

Solution #2
If the /etc/hosts file looks good then check to make sure that the xtier daemons are running.
rcnovell-xregd status (if not running rcnovell-xregd start)
rcnovell-xsrvd status (if not running rcnovell-xsrvd start)
