Reverse lookup error when installing on Linux/MaxDb

I'm trying to install NW CE 7.1 SP5 on Linux/MaxDB.

The OS is RedHat EL 5.

I've chosen all standard options, nothing custom/exotic.

When entering the database parameters I enter sap.mycompany.com as Database Host.

Then I get an error message saying:


This computer's host name is sap.mycompany.com but a reverse lookup returned 'sap'. This will lead to problems later on when starting the Web application server. SOLUTION: Insert a line ' sap.mycompany.com' into the host file etc/hosts, and then continue with the installation.


The solution doesn't work and we're stuck here.

Thanks for your help
