  My hosts file looks to be correct so this is not the issue. Here is a 
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.       localhost      cmt node-0       # server_name is cmt - this comment is 
not part of hosts file....      node-1      node-2      node-3

Here is a momctl from one of the nodes:
[root at node-55 sbin]# ./momctl -d 3

Host: node-55/node-55   Version: 2.0.0p8
