Hello Experts,

I am quite new to the linux environment which makes make me new to SUSE as well. This is my first post here.
I have installed SLES 11 on VMware. The reason for this is to install SAP HANA on this server. I have performed all the preinstallation steps. When started the installation process, I get the following error:

'There is no hostname <hanadb> bound to computersystem <localhost>
Either check your computersystem or your model'

Can you please let me know what could be reason for the error? I have checked the /etc/hosts file and I can see my IP, fqdn and the host alias that I have added using the Hostnames through YSaT.

Appreciate your help.
