Recently I had to setup some WebSphere Portal 6.1 installations in VMWares within a private network. Unfortunately the portal installer aborted with the following message “EJPIC0067E: Portal requires a fully qualified host name that is recoganized by the DNS Server.” Even when adding the fully qualified hostname to the hosts file the installer may still fail with the same message.
The workaround is to disable the hostname check by invoking the portal installer with the following parameter specified: -W nodeHost.active=”False”. You should however only do this for test or development installations.
