Recommended Endeca Server Host File Changes And Compatibility With Exalogic Installation (Doc ID 1619309.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Endeca Server - Version 7.6.0 to 7.6.0 [Release 7.x]
Oracle Endeca Information Discovery Studio - Version 3.1.0 to 3.1.0 [Release 3.x]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

EID 3.1 documentation recommends changes to the hosts file to workaround hostname resolution issues (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E40518_01/server.761/es_admin/toc.htm#Hostname%20resolution%20in%20the%20Endeca%20Server).  

We have an Exalytics/Exalogic deployment and the /etc/hosts file starts with the following warning message generated by Exalogic:

### BEGIN Generated by Exalogic. DO NOT MODIFY ###
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

Is it safe for us to make changes to the hosts file?
