If your environment does not have a DNS server, you must list all hosts to which the VLA needs to connect in /etc/hosts file on the VLA VM. For each host, enter a line consisting of the IP address, the fully qualified hostname, and the hostname into the file. The IP address must be at the beginning of the line and the entries separated by blanks or tabs. Comments are always preceded by the # sign. For example:


  • Open the /etc/hosts file in the editor of your choice. Make one entry per host on a separate line similar to the following: localhost s1.example.com s1 # comment s2.example.com s2 # comment
