Hostname or FQDN are used in SyncIQ policies and Eyeglass jobs are not running


  • Hostname used in SyncIQ policies and Eyeglass jobs are not running


The following could be related to the problem described:

  • Hostname or FQDN

  • DNS configuration on Eyeglass appliance


If you are using hostname for target in your SyncIQ policies, the DNS information entered during Eyeglass appliance setup must be able to resolve this host back to the cluster IP address in order for Eyeglass to perform configuration replication.  If the hostname cannot be resolved, Eyeglass will not create the associated configuration replication Job.

  1. Click Eyeglass Main Menu.

  2. Click Eyeglass Shell.

  3. Login with your Eyeglass credentials.

  4. To validate the FQDN, type in hostname --fqdn where prompted.

  6. Proceed to ping the IP address by typing in ping <your IP address>.
