DNS error on LMS 2.6 installation

I am installing LMS 2.6 on a server(HPDL360-G5). I don't have the network interface connected to a live connection. When I try to install Common Services it gives me a DNS error "Name lookup, Name Lookup failure for server XXX please configure and they try installation" what is going on?


Re: DNS error on LMS 2.6 installation

Hi Sandy,

you have no network connection? Thats the problem since LMS needs the loopback address for many internal communication and of course as a network (!) management software it needs one IP address.


Just bring one ethernet interface up and connect it to a switch. LMS does a nslookup with the installation and has found no ip address. Therefore the Servername cannot be found.

You do not have to connect the LMS to a production LAN but to a single witch without connection to the rest of your network may work for the installation.

But i do not see the sense here. After installing you may have the need to change the IP address of your server. How do you test the LMS without a network device?

Have a lot of fun.


Best regards,
