Thanks for pointing out my stupidly
DNS was the problem.

The file /etc/nsswitch.conf had NIS then DNS
So doing a gethostbyaddr returned the short name which was in NIS but not 
the FQDN from DNS
So change /etc/nsswitch.conf file to have DNS first.

kprop -d -f slavedump
8515 bytes sent.
Database propagation to SUCCEEDED
