I checked the spec file for RHEL-6.4 and this is a bug (already fixed in
current upstream version). It does not include "keyutils" dependency. Thus, the
dependency may be missing in some super minimal RHELs and cause this error. If
you manuall install keyutils, this error should vanish.

# yum install keyutils

By all means no, you should not need to do that if your DNS is sane and
working. But if the addition to /etc/hosts helped, there must be something
wrong with the DNS.

Maybe there are wrong DNS PTR records cached? Do you have nscd daemon running?

Are you 100% sure that the software on the client machine resolves the FQDN of
the server when doing a reverse search?
