If you get the following error in Skedler console or in skedler.log,

[xx:xx:xx] [ INFO][skedler] - *****Checking hostname config*****

[xx:xx:xx] [ INFO][skedler] - Please wait ..................

[xx:xx:xx] [ERROR][skedler] - Configuration Error - Please check hostname configuration as given in install guide, hostname :  guidanz-kavi


Follow the steps to check for hostname configuration,

Configure the hostname as below:
  • Check your hostname by giving this command 
              $> hostname

in reporting.yml the host parameter is the host in which skedler binds.

  • If the host is configured as 127.0.0.1 then make sure you have an entry in /etc/hosts as mentioned below

              127.0.0.1 localhost

Note: if you are binding skedler to localhost you can't access it from outside.

  • If the host in reporting.yml is configured as 0.0.0.0(bind to any ip) or your server's ip then the entry in hosts file (/etc/hosts) should be,

              <ipaddress> <hostname>


and reboot the machine


NOTE:  If you are using any proxy server add your hostname to a no_proxy list in the file /etc/environment add the following line,

no_proxy="<ipaddress>,<hostname>"
