The Question is:

MicroVAX 3100, hardware model type 156
UCX V4.0
Error starting UCX:
%UCX-E-INETERROR, Error accessing Internet
-UCX-E-INVQUAL, Invalid qualifier value for /LOCAL_HOST
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
Error Internet IVP:
Begin IVP...
%%% UCX IVP: started %%%
%%% UCX IVP: error - Local Host Not Found  %%%
%SYSTEM-F-NOLOGNAM, no logical name match
IVP request completed.
UCX>Show Hosts
     LOCAL database
Host address    Host name       LOCALHOST, localhost       SMSD3, smsd3
.... and some more system.
smsd3 is the local system

It is not possible to reach this system with telnet or ping. I think this is a
 configuration problem? Many thanks for your help

The Answer is :

  Re-configure and re-enable IP routing with UCX$CONFIG, as it appears
  that there is some sort of problem with the local configuration.  A
  missing or a corrupt file, or missing configuration data apparently
  lurks here.
  If you choose the following route, make CERTAIN you keep and archive
  copies of the files BEFORE you delete or rename them.   For a complete
  reconfiguration of TCP/IP Services, shut down IP, delete or rename all
  of the local system IP configuration data files (SYS$SYSTEM:UCX*.DAT),
  perform the UCX$CONFIG configuration, and start IP.
  Your OpenVMS VAX and TCP/IP Services versions are ancient and an
  upgrade is strongly recommended.  If you must operate on versions
  from 1992 or so, you will want to install the available (mandatory)
  ECO kits for both OpenVMS VAX and TCP/IP Services.
