    Default daemon: getaddrinfo() failed: Name or service not known ?

    I have Zimbra 4.5.8 OSS on CentOS 4.5. It was working well in production until I started getting the error


    daemon: getaddrinfo() failed: Name or service not known

    Whenever I tried to start up Zimbra. Any thoughts as to where I should go from here ?

    What os are you using?

    Also, what does your hosts file look like?

    OS is CentOS 4.5, Hosts file is:

    Code:
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.

    Try adding your hostname after your FQDN, for example:

    10.10.3.1 mail.domain.com mail
