Technical Bulletin: Apprenda Installer creates incorrect hosts file entry in some situations

Published: January 5, 2018

Problem

The ACP Installer used for fresh multi-node installations incorrectly creates a hosts file entry that points the Platform URL to 127.0.0.1 on every node of the Platform. This issue happens only in situations where you installed Apprenda on a set of nodes, uninstalled it, and performed a second fresh install on the same set of nodes. This entry negatively affects Platform operations because services on the nodes cannot resolve the Platform URL and routing will not work correctly.

Resolution

It is recommended that you comment out or remove the incorrect entry from the hosts file on every Platform node.
