Error description

  • When creating a Sterling B2B Integrator or Sterling File
    Gateway cluster environment using host names, if one of the
    host names contains "ws", the host name will be truncated in the
    "URL" field under "Operations", "System",
    "Cluster", "Node Status.
    

Local fix

  • STRTC - 562073
    JMB/SF
    
    In RFC1033, it is specified that host names are not case
    sensitive on DNS servers. Therefore the host name will resolve
    to an IP address even if you have letters in upper case.
    The workaround for this issue is to edit the sandbox.cfg file in
    the /install/properties direcotry:
    - Set the "WS" part of the host name in upper case and then save
    the changes to the file.
    - Stop the application.
    - Navigate to the /install/bin directory and execute one of the
    following commands:
      - On Unix or Linux: ./setupfiles.sh
      - On Windows: setupfiles.cmd
    - When the script finishes running, restart the application.
