Default Fluent Parallel on network

Dear all,
we're experiencing an error on starting Fluent Parallel version on a network in OpenSUSE 11.1 64bit.
We've made a plain txt file with computers names of our network, run the command
fluent 3d -t6 -cnf=hostsnames

but the following error appears:

mpirun: gethostbyname(linux-n80k) failed

Can you help us in understanding where the error is?
Thanks in advance

The computer name (linux-n80k) listed in the txt file is not valid.

Hi xrs333
thanks for your message - how can we assign a valid host name for a computer in the network?
The name linux-n80k was the automatic host name for the computer. We tried also putting directly the IP addresses in the txt file (, ecc.) but it doesn't work.
Any suggestion - your thought
