  • If the host in reporting.yml for Skedler Reports or alertconfig.yml for Skedler Alerts is configured as (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,
