Environment

All the CA Embedded Entitlement Manager supported platforms

Cause

The ERROR is due to problem in the EEM hostname resolution over the network from the server where safex command is being executed.

ERROR: [0xeff15720] ispUtil::TcpAddress getaddrinfo returned error Name or service not known
ERROR: [0xeff15720] ispUtil::TcpConnect TcpAddress failed for host []
ERROR: [0xeff15720] ispUtil.HttpPostRequest: ObtainPC Failed
Setting back end to "eemserver1"

Resolution

Ensure the DNS resolution returns successful(hostname, FQDN, IP) between the servers, where safex is being executed and the EEM host server.

Important!: It is recommended to always use the fully qualified domain name for the CA EEM back end server in the safex command syntax.
