Problem:

When you try to mount an NFS share, you get the error message:
 
Cannot find address for specified system name.
 
When you press F1, you get the error code CPFA1CE.
 

Solution:

The iSeries local host file (the Host Table entry) must include the iSeries's own name in both long and short format.
 
Note: RJS Software also recommends that that you enter the remote NFS server in both formats.
 
  1. On a command line, run:

    CFGTCP

  2. Choose 10. Work with TCP/IP host table entries.
  3. If you system name is S10A1234, your host file must include the following lines:

    192.1.1.10      S10A1234
               S10A1234.MYDOMAIN.COM

  4. If you are adding a Unix Server with the name UNIXSVR as well, you must also include the following lines:

    192.1.1.100     UNIXSVR
               UNIXSVR.MYDOMAIN.COM

  5. Save and try to mount the NFS share again.
