you may run the command

ifconfig -a

which will show you the network interfaces and their IPs

OR

you could run

grep `hostname` /etc/hosts

OR

nslookup `hostname`

Since the question was originally posted in the Oracle Database topic area, I'll assume you want an Oracle solution as well.

use the UTL_INADDR package


select UTL_INADDR.get_host_address('nyspcor01g') from dual;

Note, in 11g or higher databases you'll need an ACL that allows the RESOLVE privilege

thomasliju,

Can you explain why you accepted the post you did? ifconfig and /etc/hosts had both been posted previously.
