Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report?  Also, what does DNS think the hostname of this machine is?  You should be able to query that on tty2 using the "host" command, I believe.

anaconda.log file

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2010-09-22 19:26:12 UTC
Any idea what "host <your ip address>" says?  I don't see how we can end up with just a dot by default from what anaconda's doing.

Comment 5 A S Alam 2010-09-29 13:23:32 UTC
from other system, host <IP> output is (host command was not there with installer):
[aalam@i7hawk ~]$ host domain name pointer test1085.test.redhat.com.

$cat /etc/resolv.conf (on machine, where installation going on)

Comment 6 Radek Vykydal 2010-09-29 15:58:37 UTC
Can you please attach also /tmp/syslog? You can find the file also on target system as /var/log/anaconda.syslog.

Comment 7 A S Alam 2011-05-25 09:10:35 UTC
system is no longer available with me. Closing as insufficient data
