    Hi Naveen,

    as Bhargav wrote you should try to use the Full Qualified Hostname.

    There is also a system profile parameter gw/alternative_hostnames available that might help you as well.

    I am using it in my test landscapes that are cloned systems. All have the same hostname, but this cannot be resolved by our internal DNS. But the responses in XML usually contain this hostname.

    If you configure

    gw/alternative_hostnames = <IP adress of your clone>

    in DEFAULT.PFL then the system will respond such that the URL's in the responses would also contain the IP.

    So maybe maintaining the hostname that you are using in the profile might also help.

    See also the official documentation for that parameter
