Symptoms

11.1.0.1 Grid Agent is installed on HP-UX Itanium / HP-UX PA-RISC platforms.

The <AGENT_HOME>/sysman/log/emagent.trc shows the following entries occuring many times:

2010-08-28 08:25:02,562 Thread-4 ERROR http: Error in obtaining IP address, ret = 7005
2010-08-28 08:25:33,296 Thread-4 ERROR http: Error in obtaining IP address, ret = 7005
2010-08-28 08:26:04,040 Thread-4 ERROR http: Error in obtaining IP address, ret = 7005
2010-08-28 08:26:34,884 Thread-4 ERROR http: Error in obtaining IP address, ret = 7005
2010-08-28 08:27:05,695 Thread-4 ERROR http: Error in obtaining IP address, ret = 7005


The Agent operations (metric collection, upload, etc) seem to work fine but the above entries result in the emagent.trc file getting filled up very fast.

The same issue happens in 11.2.0.1 and 11.2.0.2 DB Control Agents too in HP-UX Itanium platform.
