When I go to host's DNS & Routing, choose properties and then click ok, I get the error "The domain name is not in the correct format"...
The name is name.domain.co.uk
do I need to reserve name iin MS DNS?
The name should be:
machine name: esx1
server should be esx1
and just below it on the domain is noone.com
No special characters just numbers, letters and the period.
In your case it we be name, and below is domain.co.uk
check the following files:
for dns connectivity
for dns hostname of the esx host
and change the real esx server name
From the console type "esxcfg-advcfg -s <your new server name> /Misc/HostName". Then restart server
Do not remove the following line, or various programs
that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.3.250 name.domain.co.uk name
thanks, just having a look and if I click on properties
Name = localhost
On routing tab, should the VMKernel have a gateway assinged?
Sorry this may be obvious question but I'm a strugling newbie
