OAM 11R2: Domains With Hyphen In The Domain Name Cause The Unified Installer to Fail

(Doc ID 1683197.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Documentation confirms that using a hyphen in the domain name will cause the installer to fail but does this also include domain names?

eg:  server123.my-company.com

So does the provided documentation include domain name with hyphen character is also a problem?

/* Deployment Fails with Error: Incorrect Host Format for Attribute


Deployment fails with an error similar to this:

Incorrect host format for attribute : PRIMARY_OAM_SERVERS : server-123.mycompany.com

Due to a bug, one of the tools invoked during the deployment process cannot handle host names containing the hyphen (-) character.


Use host names that do NOT contain the hyphen (-) character.

domain name are not listed here, only the host name
