Install problem - get stuck with environment check

Postby kenneth01 » Tue Jun 16, 2015 8:17 pm

Almost there... but not quite yet..

I get stuck at this:

System check report:
Environment check passed.
Filesystem check passed.
Network check failed -- Could not find a host name in DNS that matches an IP address
Network check failed -- IP address '' associated with host name '' in DNS cannot be confirmed as this host's IP address

When I check the IP address of eth0 it is correctly and I did put in the mail server hostname using this:

vi /etc/sysconfig/network
vi /etc/hosts newHostName localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

And the response from DNS in my firewall correctly gives the DNS reponse back on "" if I do a nslookup.

It all looks fine :cry:

Best regards

Hi Kenneth,
Can you Please tell me what OS and Version are you using?,
Also If you are using minimal Or Server with Gui Install?,
What version of Scalix are you trying to install?,
also tell me If you have edited /etc/hosts , /etc/resolv.conf. /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<your-nic-name> files?
also please tell me "cat" output of the above files.

The pointer to "DNS" from scalix-installer might be irritating.

You should simply add a line XXX
to /etc/hosts, The second XXX is the short hostname.
Pointing to for the hostname is not sufficient for Scalix.
