  • Check your Database Name and SPN in Domain if you are using a domain user account. The issue is that database host cannot be found during post-installation.

  • use the FQDN fixed this issue

    The necessity of having to use the FQDN to fix this issue strongly suggests that the DNS environment for this system is not properly configured.

    I would suggest reviewing the domain configuration and DNS Suffix configurations to ensure that the system is capable of resolving names within its own domain (or other domains that may host needed resources).
