OK, let us do it again.
First of all, in your case hostname does not really matter, but as you can imagine, local domain is just something not real. Your choice, use it or not… I usually don’t.
so, let us say we have hostname as jjscentos64 and the same name returned by both “hostname” and “hostname -f” commands.
So, our /etc/hosts files contains the following line:
Now, do the following (in order):
!!! Make sure you have net-snmp and net-snmp-utils installed. Without it HMC will fail.
service hmc stop
yum erase hmc puppet (puppet needs to be removed in order to get fresh certificate on the place, referring to the correct node name)
yum install hmc (this will also install puppet as a dependency and create all needed certificates)
service hmc start
When it started, (it will show “Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using 10.41.5.53 for ServerName”, just ignore this) point your browser to http://10.41.5.53/hmc/html
If you use “remote” browser and have set hosts file on windows to resolve node name (10.41.5.53 jjscentos64), you can also use http://jjscentos64/hmc/html.
Please, try and let me know of results.
