    FAILED  nslookup host.domain

    Submarine768

      I am performing an R12.2 Vision Installation on SLES 11 SP3 for VMWARE.

      Reference

       

      I executed the " ./rda.sh -T hcve " check to perform the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.2.0) Preinstall (Linux x86_64).

      I receive this failure:   " A03550 DNS Lookup           FAILED  nslookup host.domain "

      Can you help direct me to why I may be receiving this error?

       

      more  /etc/hosts  ------My etc hosts I believe is setup correctly.

      Platinium2:~ # ping Platinium2     -----Ping resolves correctly to what is in /etc/hosts

      When I do an nslookup of the host server that I am working on :

       

      Platinium2:/pwoll/rda # nslookup Platinum

          Hi there

           

          You are executing this:

           

          Platinium2:/pwoll/rda # nslookup Platinum


          and you are trying to reach the Platinum2


          On the other hand, Just to be sure is your DNS working correctly ?


          Regards

              Hi,

               

              Please could you post o/p :

               

              cat /etc/resolv.conf

               

              you should do nslookup for the entry configure here like "oracle.com"

               

              thanks,

              X A H E E R
