VCSA deployment fails with invalid System Name; Error: Firstboot script Execution Error

Error: First boot script Execution Error

During the deployment of vCenter Appliance 6.0 you are asked to enter the FQDN/IP for the appliance.


If you enter FQDN instead of the IP address for the vCenter Server, it is important to note:

    1. Make sure DNS entry for the vCenter Server is done prior to beginning VCSA 6.0 installation.
    2. Add the domain name and Custom DNS Suffix to the hosts in the cluster where vCenter is deployed.
    3. Use the nslookup command to verify if the shortname of vCenter Server can be resolved from the DNS server and ESXi host
