I am using Oracle on Linux 6.8. I am using OSB to take a backup to tape. After an unknown host name error in the backup log, I edited the /etc/hosts file and restarted the server.

After restarting, when I enter obtool in the DB server (which is a client) it says

failed to read configuration data - Network is unreachable

Can anyone please throw me some light on this issue?

  • Does the machine you're on have network connectivity? Have you verified it with some pings/traceroutes? – Philᵀᴹ Apr 3 '19 at 9:15
