Hi Max,
    thanks for the reply.

I'll change the hosts file names used  to correspond with an associated test

dynamic update of host / ip mappings updates are accommodated as seen 
per the tests

yes, that's correct the structure of hosts file does not align with 
/etc/hosts (ip address list of aliases), it aligns with the
various customized NameService implementations in the test framework.

I'll look into the UnknownHostException suggestion
