As Alvaro said, you probably ran something with '-name' instead of 
'-sname' at some point, and as a result you'll need to kill the epmd 
process that is now sitting there expecting long names.

But what you are doing above just isn't going to work. you must supply a 
proper hostname in -sname, and that hostname must resolve to the correct IP.
