Linux Forwarders not talking to Deployment Server

Path Finder

I have a lab setup in VMWare Workstation that has both Linux and Windows servers setup to talk to a Linux deployment server on port 8089 (default). The windows servers are talking to the deployment server, but the linux forwarders (both heavy and universal) are not. Thw windows servers are showing up in settings > forwarder management. Both windows and linux forwarders have the same configuration in deploymentclient.conf:

[target-broker:deploymentServer]
targetUri = 192.168.199.177:8089

I can ping with no problem. I have completely turned off iptables on I have gone through every log file I can find in /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/* and cannot find any issues. Does anyone know which log I should be looking at to find the issue? I am thinking I may be having a VMWare issue since I have set this up in production many times without issue.

Any logs relating to DeploymentClient should be in splunkd.log.

Well, I have found the solution. Had to set the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network and then reboot the server.

Can you please give a more detailed description of the fix. I think I have the same issue as posted above and I could not find this path "/etc/sysconfig/network".
