I have installed ClearOS 7.3 on a Zotaz Nano AD12 with no problems. It came up with a DHCP address from my firewall. I connected to that address, port 81 successfully and logged in as root.

First step was to change the ethernet interface to a static address. When I went in to edit the address, I saw the option to modify the address and to set the hostname. I chose to edit the address first. I successfully changed to a static address (outside my firewall's DHCP range) and then had to relogin on this new address. Got back to the interfaces page, but now I can's see to change the hostname. So I am still localhost.localdomain.

OK. I proceed. The DNS test of my internal DNS server was successful. I proceed and select Community Edition. Next screen fails with the DNS lookup. /etc/resolv.conf only has (note that prior to setting static address, it also had the addr of my DNS server).

So right now two blocking issues:

How do I set the hostname.

More importantly, how do I get this registration step done. Why is it failing on DNS test when prior page's DNS test was successful?

thank you

One note, from the console tty2, I modifed /etc/ssh/sshd_config to use the TCP port I use for all my servers and to all root login via SSH (as I have not added a user ID yet). This worked, and I have an ssh connection to the server, logged in as root.

yes, the first time running the wizard. Thanks for showing my how to turn off the wizard...

AH, figured out my DNS problem. I have set this server up on a 'new' subnet, and I had to added in to the acl on my internal DNS server.

Sometimes we get too smart for our own good!

    Is your problem during the first-run wizard?

    If you set a static IP you need to set DNS servers manually. You can do it through the webconfig > Network > Settings > IP Settings > Your WAN interface (in standalone mode use the WAN interface) > Uncheck Automatic DNS servers and Update. You should the be able to edit the DNS servers on the webconfig > Network > Settings > IP Settings page. And, not the settings are kept in /etc/resolv-peerdns.conf and not resolv.conf.

    Note you can stop the wizard by navigating to https://your_clearos_lan_ip:81/app/base/wizard/stop. You can then finish off configuration manually.
