When Installing Oracle EM the Universal Installer Gives the Error: "Oracle recommends a fully qualified domain name" (Doc ID 2212811.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2016

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When installing the Oracle Enterprise Manager, the default host name is not accepted due to the error:

Oracle recommends a fully qualified domain name

But when you add the domain name to the value, a new popup error says:

The installer detected the host name as <host>, but you have changed it to <host.domain>

How do you get past the Catch-22 here?
