Hello Amritesh,

 

Thank you for your request to our community. We are happy to assist you with this matter.

Please make sure the following items.


1. Please confirm that you set <controller-host> in '<agent_home>/verx.x.x.x.x/conf/controller-info.xml'. It is also necessary to set the property such as <application-name>, <tier-name> and <node-name> which is described as "Required:Yes" in the following document.

2. If you use a proxy, please set the information in your system property.

3. Please share the result of the command "nslookup <YOUR HOST NAME HERE>" in order to confirm that name resolution is working fine.

---<example>-----

C:\Users\myaccount>nslookup mysaasaccount2020021717171312.saas.appdynamics.com
Server: UnKnown
Address: xxx.xx.xxx.xx

Name: xxxxx.saas.appdynamics.com
Addresses: xx.xx.xx.x
xx.xx.xx.x
Aliases: mysaasaccount.saas.appdynamics.com.localdomain
