HPUX: Bad nsswitch.conf can cause license checkouts to fail 14 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 2
On (at least) HP-UX systems, we have encountered problems in checking out a license from a remote license server based on the configuration of the nsswitch.conf file.

With the file specifying "hosts: files dns", the license could not be checked out. Changing this to "hosts: dns files" or to "hosts: files [NOTFOUND=continue] dns" resolved the problem.

This problem was seen to happen on HPUX 11 and 11i.
