CABI installation fails with log messages referencing host name or password problems during its postgres DB connection validation process.
When installing CABI for CAPM integration part of the installation process is a database connection test. It uses the dbHost value from the configured properties file, among other values, to attempt this connection test.
The dbHost is supposed to be set with the CABI servers host name, or its FQDN.
In some cases using some remote connections, despite proper /etc/hosts file configuration, when running the install on the CABI server this value will trigger an error.
Set the dbHost name value in the properties file to localhost.
The solution is dependent on localhost configuration in /etc/hosts file. Most cases that would look similar to:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 localhost Redhat-6
::1 localhost.localdomain localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost Redhat-6
