The aim of this series is to pass on the hands-on knowledge of the products, directly to you. All of the information is sourced from using the product in the field with you, so hopefully having this focus and having a central location will help all using the product. Today's session focuses on correcting the self ping test that is needed to install V8. This can be flagged as FAIL by the installation pre-req checker/scanner. There are a series of blogs all targeting and demonstrating how to correct pre-req failures step-by-step with a live demo.

This session overviews how to correct the self ping test, including:

  • How to find the machines IP address

  • How to find the machines hostname

  • How to change the machines "hosts" file

  • How to check the change has corrected the issue
