System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: No DNS entries exist for host Hostname. ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No such host is known

   --- End of inner exception stack trace --- 

Environment

NPM version 12

Cause 

Additional pollers are not able to do a forward lookup for the hostname. 

Resolution

  1. Log in into the additional poller and open a command prompt. 
  2. Run nslookup:

    Example output for valid forward lookup:

    nslookup sup-aus-malm-02.swdev.local

    Server:  aus-dev-dc-02.swdev.local
    Address:  10.110.108.11

    Name:    sup-aus-malm-02.swdev.local
    Address:  10.110.6.169

     

    Example output for incorrect lookup:

    nslookup sup-aus-malm
    Server:  aus-dev-dc-02.swdev.local
    Address:  10.110.108.11

     

    *** aus-dev-dc-02.swdev.local can't find sup-aus-malm: Non-existent domain

  3. Change the poller to primary poller to test.
  4. Server team will need to correct the DNS issue for forward lookup.
