Hi Lu,
I don't think so.
Could you check the hosts file: localhost should resolve to, not to the address associated with the hostname. Please also try the following commands and post their output:

ping localhost
nslookup localhost

Could you also post the hosts file on the node where fails (obfuscate IP addresses, names and aliases if necessary).
