The TCP/IP networking subsystem is not up.
The table of open files for the system is temporarily full.
System buffer space is unavailable.
Informix Error Code -55251 Could not translate service name ‘shost-name’, getservbyname( ) failed.

A service that was intended for use by DB/Cockpit must be defined with the ‘tcp’ protocol name.

1. NIS services map when NIS (Network Information Service) is running. If you added a new service to the /etc/services file on the NIS server, run the ‘ypmake’ command to update the services map. Check whether the ‘ypcat services’ command returns the specified service.
2. File /etc/services on the local computer.
