Trying to install AGE 10.7.1 with Builder.

Before launching the setup, i changed my etc/hosts file to let my server see itself as rather than its FQDN ( suggested in… 


The etc/hosts now has this line


To confirm it works, pinging the server with ping -a  MY_SERVER_IP shows rather than the FQDN.


I launched the installation and everything went fine (all green check marks).

Then, opening the configuration wizard in the browser, (i changed the URL from http://localhost:6080/arcgis/enterprise to ), after filling all the information, I reach the error:


The wizard is redirecting to the FQDN (, and there's no way I can make it work.

I can however reach which redirects me to the Web Adaptor configuration page ( ), meaning that probably the etc(hosts trick worked.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how I would make the Builder configuration wizard to point to this address rather than the FQDN one.

I am again stuck with installing AGE with Builder and I REALLY hope someone will shed a light on how I can solve this without removing everything and reinstalling each component manually (that is one day of work at least).

There's also this other thread… where Jonathan Quinn says:

1) Use the hosts file under C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc to set the alias so the Builder will use that hostname for configuring everything:



This however seems to have failed in my case, and according to the many threads I found on Geonet, most people just gave up and did a manual install of the AGE components separately...
