Issue:
During install of CA Spectrum using "command-line" tool "sdiclinux.exe" the install fails reporting error SPC-INT-20068 and pointing to the "remote_hostname" to be not resolveable. 

The "sdiclinux.exe" shows output like:

labspec03: Creating installation log: LOGS_20180721/labspec03.16.14
labspec03: Starting Test
labspec03: SPC-INT-20068: Error: We were unable to resolve  from labspec03.

The here reported "hostname" "labspec03" is all fine for DNS and name resolution. 


 
Environment:
CA Spectrum all Platforms when using command-line tool "sdic"
Cause:
The "sdiclinux.exe" is using the hostarguments - and we found out, that parameter "main_loc_serv=" was not set at all. 
The parameter "main_loc_serv=" have to cover the destination hostname - or the valid (and resolveable) MainLocationServer hostname.
 
Resolution:


Seeing a reference to the "remote_host=labspec03" in the command output is missleading . So corrected the hostarguments file for the " sdiclinux " executable resolves this case when the "main_loc_serv=" parameter is correctly set. 

Set "main_loc_serv=" to the destination (remote_host=) parameter in case this is a single SpectroSERVER install - or
set "main_loc_serv=" to the valid (and resolveable) MainLocation-SpectroSERVER hostname.
