Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


Network Warning:
It appears that the DNS name for this machine contains one or more invalid characters, or is formatted incorrectly. You may encounter errors in your ZENworks configuration if you procede without first correcting the problem.


Although nslookup ip_address returns a valid DNS name for this host, the installation libraries are using DNS lookup ordering that puts host file entry first. Check for a corrupted host file entry.

Additional Information

The DNS warnings during installation should be resoved before continuing. Faulty DNS resolution or reverse DNS lookup will cause problems with product functionality.
