Cause

The EEM installer retrieves the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the system/host machine using the Java method getCanonicalHostName() of the java.net.InetAddress class. Hence, the FQDN of the EEM host should be resolvable.

Environment

CA Embedded Entitlements Manager r12.51+ on all supported platforms.

Resolution

Please ensure the EEM host server's FQDN is resolvable. The ping command should work with the FQDN.

You may have to add the FQDN in the hosts file (On Windows: %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts, On Linux/UNIX: /etc/hosts) of the server if the FQDN is not registered in the Domain Name Server (DNS).
