I had an ip alias that I removed successfully. When I ran a netstat -i, it showed the correct network coloumn and matching to the correct address coloumn for my server. I rebooted my server and no longer see the server name in the address coloumn when I run a netstat -i. When I run an ifconfig -a, it shows my the correct ip address and network interface. When I run a netstat -i, it doesn't show ther server name in the address coloumn. What can I do to make the server name appear in the address coloumn when I run netstat -i??

Run "smitty mktcpip", select your interface and set the hostname beneath "HOSTNAME".

Additionally, check /etc/hosts for the presence of hostname and IP of your machine.
