Section Number and Name: 7.2.1

Describe the issue: 

This doesnt really specify that these commands need to be run from the capsule server, it assumed that customer should run it.

I think we can improve this with adding

[root@capsule] #  ping -c1 `hostname -f`

On this part, it asks customer to run commands to check for the following.

Full forward and reverse DNS resolution using a fully qualified domain name. Check that hostname and localhost resolve correctly, using the following commands:

 ping -c1 `hostname -f`
hostname: Unknown host

Can we have an example of a working hostname check
ping -c1 `hostname -f`
PING capsulejnikolaksat6rhel6.pek.redhat.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from capsulejnikolaksat6rhel6.pek.redhat.com ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.015 ms

Why do we need reverse, what do we need forward?

(In reply to jnikolak from comment #0)

Can you take a look at the rewritten Installation Guide content, section 2.8, here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/red-hat-satellite/version-6.2-beta/installation-guide/ to ensure that it is sufficient?

I've added the following text to this as well to clarify where the user is running the commands:

Verifying the full forward and reverse DNS resolution using a fully-qualified domain name enables you to prevent issues while installing Satellite or Capsule Server. If you are installing Satellite Server, run this command on the Satellite Server. If you are installing Capsule Server, run this command on Capsule Server.

Can you clarify what you mean by your last question?
