A task, involving provisioning of a Windows service, managed by WPE, fails with the error:

SOAP Error: Client, Host not found: get host by name failed in tcp_connect() (host 'wpe.domain.local', error code 1)


WPE server hostname is not resolved from OA Management Node.


  1. Make sure the configured DNS server at OA MN can resolve the WPE host name.


  2. Temporarily add WPE hostname to IP mapping in /etc/hosts on the OA Management Node: wpe.domain.local
