vCenter 6.0 -> 6.5 Upgrade 'Failed normalizing ip" Messages

Does anyone know what the message Failed normalizing ip: <FQDN> means when upgrading a vCenter server from 6.0 to 6.5?

I'm using the 6.5 CLI upgrader, and I'm getting this "Failed normalizing ip:" message, but with no any other useful diagnostic information.

No idea. May have some idea if you show what and how you're passing commands to the CLI upgrader.

It's simply the standard CLI commands...

You prep your .JSON file for the type of upgrade destination, and then you enter the command-line parameters.  In this case, there is nothing unusual...

vcsa-deploy upgrade --accept-eula --acknowledge-ceip --log-dir=<path> <JSON FIle with path>

Nothing interesting.  Thought I do typically add the verbose flag as well (--verbose)...

During the process, you see the occasional 'failed normalizing ip: <FQDN> of the vCenter or PSC'

I don't see it in any of our documentation, or posted anywhere else.
