You may need to edit
/etc/hosts in the Alation chroot to add DNS records on the Alation server.
Every time you enter the Alation shell, Alation copies the
/etc/hosts file from the host system into the Alation chroot. Because of this, you shouldn’t edit
/etc/hosts in the Alation chroot. If you do, your changes will be overridden next time you enter the Alation shell.
/etc/hosts isn’t managed by alation_conf.
/etc/hosts, follow these steps:
Use SSH to connect to the Alation server.
/etc/hostson the host system. Save your changes.
Enter the Alation shell using the following command:
sudo /etc/init.d/alation shell
This will automatically copy
/etc/hoststo the Alation chroot.
Exit the Alation shell.
