CauseThe hostname of remote AM server can't be resolved or the remote AM server is offline.
ResolutionGo to Security Console - Administration - Trusted Realms - Manage Existing and do the following.
1. If the remote trusted realm no longer exists, delete the trusted realm.
2. If the hostname/ip of remote trusted realm has been changed, update the trusted realm package.
3. If the remote trusted realm server is offline, bring that server online and this issue should be automatically fixed.
