Subject: Re: Strange SAS teradata message
I have no teradata, but I have an idea, where to look. That name, you use,
is not the real name. Means: behind EM_NOHOST there is something other.
For IP-adresses in TCP/IP there is a file where that substitutions are
contained. For the big WWW that is done by DNS servers, for some local
names, you have the HOSTS file. Maybe the substitute is also something
like a IP-adress.
You should contact your sysadmin with that error message. He can tell you,
how the name is, you can use, or he enters the needed entry in the right
file, so you can use the name you are used to.
