Solution:

CA Directory will no longer listen on the IPv6 loopback address on Windows platforms 2008 and greater.

This is returned by Windows during hostname resolution even when IPv6 isn't enabled.

If it is required that the DSA listens on the IPv6 loopback address then "::1" needs to be explicitly specified in the address list.

This was resolved in CA directory r12.0 SP6 or greater.

Resolution for Directory r12.0SP5 and below:

Edit hosts file

Example:

hostname 127.0.0.1
hostname ::1

Resolution for Directory 12.0SP6 and above:

  • Install CA Directory r12.0 SP6 first on Win2008 SP2 or greater.
  • Install Identity Manager Components on top of this.
