Netweaver 7.51 installation: Error Unable to determine parameter "DNS domain name".

3941 Views

Hello,

I am installing SAP Netweaver AS 7.51 on my (K)Ubuntu machine using Oracle VirtualBox and yet another (K)Ubuntu instance. I have followed this guide which I find tremendously helpful to the letter.

I have assigned 100GB of space and 6GB of RAM, 2 processors on a 64-bit system. VirtualBox is in a bridged networking mode, so the guest system is visible on my network as separate device.

So far so good, however, during installation I get the following error message while the installation process aborts:

Unable to determine parameter "DNS domain name". DNS domain name is not configured in resolv.conf (UNIX) or the registry (Windows) and neither getaddrinfo nor gethostbyname could retrieve it.
Failed action:  with parameters 
Error number 301 error type SPECIFIC_CODE

/etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1       localhost
192.168.168.150 vhcalnplci vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

/etc/resolv.conf:

# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
#     DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
# 127.0.0.53 is the systemd-resolved stub resolver.
# run "systemd-resolve --status" to see details about the actual nameservers.
nameserver 192.168.168.230
nameserver 127.0.0.53

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. I am a Linux enthusiast and not easily scared away, so please keep your questions coming.

Thank you / wieman01
