On installation and reboots, the System hostname FQDN of the system shows as
What I thought was the issue since doing this fixed it was since the installer did not add the 127.0.0.1 to the List of DNS servers (in front of the other public DNS servers or course) upon installation, but the issue comes back when rebooting the server. I have 4 servers that I am setting up at the same time and they all do the same thing.
Upon reboot editing the DNS servers, and removing and re-adding the loopback address fixes the issue, but it is a bit of a hassle having to do this on reboot, and I wanted to post this here since this might be causing other issues.
The first issue I noticed related to this was a part of the installer, one of the last steps set to create the FQDN, only pre-fills “host…” instead of the entire FQDN.
Another issue I had to correct was in Webmin > Servers > Postfix Mail Server > General Options > What domains to receive mail for. I had to remove the “…” in “Host…”
I do not know if there are any other issues this could be causing but wanted to let you know.
The above issue happens on a clean-up to date minimal install with only Open-SSH server installed outside of the base Ubuntu 22.04 clean install, all up to date, static IP address, set hosts file as I have always done.
I have done this 3 times and it has happened each time. I thought on the last time adding the missing loopback would fix the issue [before beginning the instillation of Virtualmin] (in front of the other public DNS servers or course), but it appears to be a deeper issue.
Another issue, in Virtualmin > Server Configuration > DNS Records, If I need to change IP addresses and I uncheck the Validate Records, it still gives me an error due to validation error. So it is not ignoring validation like I am asking.
In other news, I would love to know what happened to Virtualmin > Limits and Validation > FTP Directory Restrictions.
I cannot find it anywhere.
I do hope this is enough information, please let me know if you need any more information.
