I have several servers set up in a development pipeline, and have accordingly had our network team give them DNS names. So each gateway has a server name with the pattern <3 char site code>V<4 digit sequence>, and then a DNS record with the pattern IGN_<3 char site code>_.
As an example:
My dev server at site WHQ could be WHQV1234 with DNS name IGN_WHQ_DEV.
The DesignerLauncher successfully recognizes http://IGN_WHQ_DEV:8088 as a valid gateway and lets me add it; however, when I try to launch the Designer, it does not work (I get an error saying “Error launching application: UnknownHostException: null”). If I use the server name (so http://WHQV1234:8088) the Designer will successfully launch. Note that I can ping both server and DNS name, I can access Perspective sessions using both server and DNS name… it seems to be just the DesignerLauncher thus far that has issues.
Any ideas on why this is failing?
