You have one of two options:
1) Fix your issue via DNS
2) Fix your issue via host file
3) I guess a possible the third one would be to use DHCP reservations to ensure you know the IP your system is going to get and then provision the system’s OM name to be the DHCP IP address . Then you wouldn’t have to worry about the server name during the build process.
I'm liking the idea of setting the OM name to the DHCP, I'm going to have to think about it some more though.
Looks like it will have to be a blcli script rather than using the Provisioing manager GUI.
The 1st job in the PPBJ should be a type 2 nsh job that pulls the IP_ADDRESS property from the target server, then dumps this in the hosts file on the appserver(s).
the last job in the PPBJ should remove this entry, assuming somewhere in there you are going to re-ip the box.
this will work in 7.6 up to 8.0SP5, and then again in 8.0SP10. it's broken between SP5 and SP10 because of another fix that was put in (the fix prevents the ppbj from running if the agent registration fails because of the host resolution error)
I have one follow on question.
I notice you have put "appserver(s)" does this mean just the appservers or all servers running blappserv?
By that I mean, is it just the appservers or should that also include my PXE servers that are running blappserv to manage the PXE server.
any appserver that could run the ppbj.
