I am trying to get ntpd running correctly under Redhat 7.2.  My host
file has 3 entries: agdisplay agdisplay.motlabs.com agvideo   agvideo.motlabs.com agaudio   agaudio.motlabs.com

When I try to run ntpd, I get this error:
localhost not found

So I added this to the host file:  agvideo localhost.localdomain localhost

And ntpd is happy (ntpdc -p returns ag.mcs.anl.gov), however, when I run
vrm-eventlistener, it reports:
hostname lookup returns localhost ( and I do not get a

Any help would be appreciated.
