The problem is that ndbm has a 4k limit on the size of fields. What I had to
do was reduce the number of keys (left hand column) that I was combining into
the final key aessun. Instead of having a key for every machine I changed the
table to have a key for every group of machines instead. ie:
servers (kocrsv01,,) (kocrsv02,,) (kocrsv03,,) ...
I also deleted the fully qualified names since they were not needed.
