    Just make sure your hostname is set and can be resolved.

    You can also put it's ip and hostname in /etc/hosts

    I had this same problem. Oddly enough this issue was only resolved when I changed the hosts file so that my hostname.mydomain.com hostname came AFTER the localhost.localdomain localhost

    Strange but true.

    Hi

    I have the same problem on a Suse 9.3 Server.

    What exactely do I have to add to /etc/hosts? I tried to add a line with my server IP AFTER the localhost line:

    <IP-NR> domainname.ch

    That did not work. The upgrade log is still telling me, that my domainname is not set. Entering domainname in a shell or hostname -f yields no results.

    Is /etc/hosts to only place I have to enter the domainname (or hostname)?

    I'm stuck.

    Thank You for help.

    i had the same problem and it worked after changing to this format:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost
    x.x.x.x     sXXXXXXX.mydomain.de  sXXXXXXXX
    
    also check the DNS-resolving of the hostname with and without domain.

    OK, it worked...

    not by only writing the domain in /etc/hosts but usting domainname and hostname to set the names for the server

    does this make sense?
