I cannot add Apache service node in PPA. The task 'Install additional packages on node 'ppa.apache.local' fails with the following error:

    [INFO] Checking that SELinux is switched off...
    [INFO] Checking hostname...
    [ERROR] The hostname is not defined. Please specify the hostname and re-run task again.


Hostname does not resolve on the Service Node.


  1. Add hostname in /etc/hosts file.
  2. Restart the failed task.
