Red Hat Certificate System installation fails, pkicreate ends with an incomplete URL for the hostname

Solution In Progress - Updated -


We are going through the installation and running pkicreate, following the instructions at
In section 6.2.1 - Installing and Configuring a CA.

After issuing the 'pkicreate' command in step 4, I am unable to access the config UI through FireFox.
It does not appear to be a firewall issue as the ports are open.
The browser's error is:

  The connection was interrupted
  The connection to was interrupted while the page was loading.

The tomcat and server logs did not yield any clues so far.
