SharePoint Network Error (dns_unresolved-hostname) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After I set up a farm I am not able to go to the site central admin at all. However, when I tried to reach central admin on a different machine it comes up. But not on the actual server where the farm is configured. I get the following error:

    <big>Network Error (dns_unresolved_hostname)</big>

    Your requested host "mymossfarm" could not be resolved by DNS.


    Can someone please help me with this?

  • Can you do the following? 

    • Add a host entry on the server. C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

               central administration site. 

    •  Disable loop back.
    • Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK
    • In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
    • Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. (In Win 2008, its DWORD 32bit)
    • Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press ENTER.
    • Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
    • In the Value data box, type 1 and then click OK. Quit Registry Editor.
    • You may need to restart your server.
