Verify that the /etc/hosts file has entries for loopback and the management server.
Make certain that either of the following loopback entries is in the /etc/hosts file.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
Make certain that an entry exists for the management server and its IP address. For example:

where 188.8.131.52 is the IP address of the management server, and n1mgmt is the name of the management server and domain is your company domain name.
Your /etc/hosts should be similar to the following example:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 10.5.157.123 n1mgmt.company.com
Save and close /etc/hosts.
