2. Modify c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file:
a. Comment out the line :::1 localhost
b. Add the following two lines:
<IPv4 address> <hostname of the computer> (10.0.0.1 target_server)
<IPv4 address> <FQDN of the computer> (10.0.0.1 target_server.my_domain.com)
3. If steps 1-2 are still not helping then please also disable IPv6 on Windows Server 2008 as per the following Microsoft documentation: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/ipv6/ipv6faq.mspx
How do I disable IPv6 inWindows Vistaand Windows Server 2008?
Unlike Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, IPv6 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 cannot be uninstalled. However, you can disable IPv6 in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 by doing one of the following:
-In the Network Connections folder, obtain properties on all of your connections and adapters and clear the check box next to the Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6) component in the list under This connection uses the following items. This method disables IPv6 on your LAN interfaces and connections, but does not disable IPv6 on tunnel interfaces or the IPv6 loopback interface.
-Add the following registry value (DWORD type) set to 0xFFFFFFFF:
This method disables IPv6 on all your LAN interfaces, connections, and tunnel interfaces but does not disable the IPv6 loopback interface. You must restart the computer for this registry value to take effect.
If no workaround is implemented then Quest agents will fail with this error when logging into System Attendant mailbox:
