I am installing the Websphere Portal Server 6.1 on my home PC. I am asked for a
fully qualified hostname (or IP address) and a node name. Now my PC is assigned
an IP address dynamically via DHCP. Installing on a machine at work then you know
the domain name etc. Anyone installed this on their home PC? What did you use as
fully qualified hostname and node name?

Hi buddy,

I installed on my home.

What Operating System do you work?

I think you need to configure your hosts.

Did you try setting hosts?

Linux
vi /etc/hosts

If your IP address is assigned to you by a DHCP server, then /etc/hosts is configured as follows:

127.0.0.1 myhome.mydomain.com localhost.localdomain localhost myhome

If you have a static IP address, then /etc/hosts is configured as follows:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.10 myhome.mydomain.com myhome

Windows
Add your ipaddress and fully qualified hostname, then save the file:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Test with: ping hostname.myhome.com

See you..
