Issue/Introduction

The dr_validate.sh script returns a hostname error and a blank list under "Provided list of host-names"

Example:

***The local host name was expected, but not found in the list of hosts in the cluster.
    Expecting one of the following names to be present:
        myhostname or myhostname.fqdn
    Provided list of host names:
        <no hostnames listed here, this line is blank>
This installer will now exit.

Environment

Release : 3.7, 20.2, 21.2

Component : IM Data Storage

Cause

drinstall.properties not specified after -p when running dr_validate.sh

Resolution

When running dr_validate.sh, the properties file must be specified as in:

dr_validate.sh -p drinstall.properties

Or if you are using a passwordless ssh sudo user to do the install (no root passwordless ssh access):

dr_validate.sh -sp drinstall.properties
