Our Master has 2 ips, I want the client to communicate with master with one only one IP from where client can communicate but the problem is cleint is pointing to the second ip of master server.

GOOD IP : 100.6.1.14 ( I have added this in /etc/hosts )

BAD IP : 14.3.1.14 ( I havent added anywhere in the client)

sapcigv:root> ./bpclntcmd -hn master-nb
host master-nb: master-nb at 14.3.1.14
aliases:     master-nb     14.3.1.14

Have you verified that /etc/nsswitch.conf is configured to look at 'files' before dns for 'hosts'?

Have you cleared NBU host cache after updating /etc/hosts?

bpclntcmd -clear_host_cache

In case if clering the cache does not help (which works in 99% of the time) Can you also try bpclntcmd -ip 100.6.1.14 and bpclntcmd -ip 14.3.1.14. Also make sure that 14.3.1.14 is not added in the hosts file. You can check nslookup master-nb too if it reflecting the correct hostname/IP. Though once you have entry in the hosts file it should not matter.

I have made entry of 14.3.1.14 master-nb in hosts file and cleared the cache many times still the issue persists.
