2012-10-02 00:19:15,294 ERROR [main] o.s.web.context.ContextLoader Context initialization failed java.lang.RuntimeException: java.net.UnknownHostException: server.localdomain: <Host_Name>: Name or service not known Caused by: java.net.UnknownHostException: server.localdomain: server.localdomain: Name or service not known at java.net.InetAddress.getLocalHost(InetAddress.java:1438) ~[na:1.7.0_07] at com.atlassian.security.auth.trustedapps.UIDGenerator.generateUID(UIDGenerator.java:25) ~[atlassian-trusted-apps-core-2.5.2.jar:na] ... 51 common frames omitted Caused by: java.net.UnknownHostException: <Host_Name>: Name or service not known
- Check if the application is accessible directly on the machine hosting the Stash server, using localhost - http://localhost:7990
- Check what is the IP address that the host name resolves to and use that IP address directly to access the application.
Stash is unable to identify the host name being used to access the application.
Add the host name to your hosts file. Usually adding the <
hostname>exposed on the log above to the
/etc/hostsof Stash server, associating it to 127.0.0.1 followed by a Stash restart will solve the problem. The entry in
/etc/hostsshould resemble the following:
- If using a DNS server ensure that the service resolves the queries for the hostname into the correct IP address.
