Thanks Joshua,

Correct, homathko is the name in the /var/spool/torque/server_priv/nodes 
file and is also in the server_name file.

The name is also in the /etc/hosts file:       localhost       homathko
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX  homathko

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Also, nslookup returns the correct name for the IP address and vice versa.

Any additional pointers would be great.
Thanks, Jan
