sbclient command is hanging


  AIX 4.2.1
  RISC 2 - 43p and J30
  sysback.rte 4.1.2 (J30)  sysback.rte (both 43p)

  From the J30 which is running sysback.rte 4.1.2  I run this 
  command:  sbclient hades echo   It just hangs

  I am able from other systems which are running 
  sysback to run this command:  sbclient hades echo

  So it appears to be a problem with backward levels of sbclient

compatibility with 4.1.3 and earlier levels, we need to reship to all existing 4.1.4.x customers. Hopefully this will 
not be a lot since it has only been available for a month but I
see no alternative at this time. has been provided to you. Please make sure to test this
in your environment using remote backups between this level and
anything prior to
