iam using a Hp Tcp/Ip V5.4 Eco 6 with Vms 7.3-2. wheni try to telnet to any ip i get the following error.
$ telnet localhost
%TELNET-E-IVHOST, Invalid or unknown host localhost
-TCPIP-W-EAI_AGAIN, temporary failure
I did some research and it was advising on configurating the BIND Resolver,but before that i have to configure the Domain. when i configure the Domain, it gives me this error.
Enter Internet domain: fsc.com.fj
%TCPIP-E-INETERROR, internet interface error
-TCPIP-E-INVQUAL, invalid qualifier value for /LOCAL_HOST
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
TCPIP$CONFIG ERROR: Error while generating valid domain name
Press Return to continue ...
Now i have 2 error, can someone please advise how to solve this two errors. it would be really great if also some1 would advise and help. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm glad that you're happy, but I still have no idea what you did.
tcpip show name_service
tcpip show hosts /local
tcpip show hosts /nolocal
> [...] when i configure the Domain [...]
Again, it would be nice to know what you're doing.

Your TCP/IP seems to be seriously misconfigured.
I think you would be better off by throwing away all of your current (mis-)configuration, and start over using only TCPIP$CONFIG.
The course of action would be:
- shut down TCPIP: $ @SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$SHUTDOWN
- remove all TCPIP config files: $ DELETE SYS$SYSTEM:TCPIP$*.DAT;*
- configure TCPIP: $ @SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG
- start TCPIP: $ @SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$STARTUP

Mr Martin and Steve,
I manage to solve this issue. this is what i did.
first i had to set the communication in the tcpip using the below
set configuration communication/local_host=xxxx /domain=xxxx (local_host = the node name of your machine)
then i was able to add the Domain using @sys$manager:tcpip$config.com. after all this was done, i then added the host to whom i wanted to telnet using
tcpip set host /address=ip address / alias = xxxxxxxx
after this i was able to telnet.
Hope this will help. Thanks for all the support been given.
