Samsung watch brings down AIX servers on network

Posted on

Op connects his samsun watch to his wireless network, AIX servers stop working.

 

Problem 1: seems watch names itself “localhost”

Problem 2: DHCP overwrote localhost DNS entry of 127.0.0.1 to samsung watch’s IP

 

Problem 3: Oracle changed the order of how they look up the local host by going to DNS first rather than it’s own host file entry.
