Temporary Failure in Name Resolution

Latest response

I'm attempting to install IdM on a RHEL7.1 server. The server itself is about 60% DISA STIG compliant. The log gives me this final error output:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipaserver/install/installutils.py", line 458, in resolve_ip_addresses_nss
    socket.AF_UNSPEC, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
2016-12-30T13:27:38Z DEBUG The ipa-server-install command failed, exception: gaierror: [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution
2016-12-30T13:27:38Z ERROR [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution

I'm trying to check all of my places before I troubleshoot outside influences. Any suggestions on what could be causing this problem? Everything else in the log file doesn't have any errors. This error happens when the script is running

2016-12-30T13:27:38Z DEBUG   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipapython/admintool.py", line 171, in execute
    return_value = self.run()

Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!


Future reference - I found the issue. NetworkManager service overwrote my /etc/resolv.conf file and the system was no longer pointing to my name servers.

Hi Team, we are trying ping any server it's getting below error.
