CauseThis issue is caused by the the failure to resolve the Authentication Manager server's hostname from the /etc/hosts file or from DNS.
  1. This can be resolved by adding a record in the hosts file from the Operations Console under Administration > Network > Hosts File.
    1. Once on the page, click Add New to include the IP address and hostname(s) in the file.  
    2. When done, click Save.
  2. Another valid option would be adding an Authentication Manager DNS entry, if appropriate, to the environment.
