    AIK: "Checking short host name on loopback : [FAULT]"


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    We are getting the error "Checking short host name on loopback : [FAULT]" in AIK step 2.1 (Pre Installation checks) 


    The first line in /etc/hosts was localhost.localdomain localhost al23app.localdomain

    Changing it to: localhost.localdomain localhost 
    corrected the problem.  (The inclusion of the server name in this line was causing this problem.)
