Apache failure: unable to find IPv4 address

    I've been getting the following error periodically I presume when Apache tries to restart:

    [alert] (EAI 2)Name or service not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "server836.alphared.com"
    The result is Apache fails to startup and all my domains are down until I notice the problem (or someone emails me). Happened again after midnight, I didn't notice until 7am. I tried to compensate with a Webmin service monitor but that doesn't work.

    Can anyone tell me why this problem occurs and what I can do about it?

    System is RHEL3 (all errata/packages up to date) and Plesk 7.5.3
