When attempting to install the CA AutoSys r11 SP2 Incremental 2 on Solaris 10, it fails with the following error:

bind call for host [localhost] resolving to address [::1] failed: Cannot
assign requested address
Sanity Test Failed, Exiting with Error code: 3
ERROR: iGateway sanity test failed


This error comes from the iGateway installer when it runs a check on /etc/inet/nodes and /etc/hosts. If it finds a line in one or both of those files that reads '::1', it will fail with a sanity check message. The '::1' is an IPv6 equivalent of localhost. To resolve this error you should either comment out the '::1' line in /etc/inet/nodes and/or /etc/hosts or enable IPv6 on the system.
