The "unable to get information on primary interface" message means that
'utadm' failed to discover a non-loopback IP address that corresponds to
the hostname of this system.  That's what causes the subsequent failures.

What does the command:

    getent hosts `hostname`

show on this system?  If it doesn't show a non-loopback IP address then
add an entry that matches the result of 'hostname' into your /etc/hosts file
and try the 'utadm' again.  (You should probably do a 'utadm -D' first to
clear out anything left behind by earlier attempts.)

If the 'getent' does show a reasonable IP address then please show us the
content of this machine's /etc/hostname.* files.
