Execution failed. Agent hostname too long; cannot be greater than 48 characters.

CauseAuto registration resolves the hostname by DNS. If ths host name is too long the Agent host cannot be registered.
ResolutionIn the above example host name has 49 characters including the domain suffix. This is a limitation by design and cannot be changed.
