If you plan to install LifeCycle Manager Server using server's (M3 Home Server) hostname instead of IP address, be sure that name resolution is working on your network. The server hosting LifeCycle Manager Server service must be accessible from LifeCycle Manager Client (M3 Project Admin Client/Server) using LifeCycle Manager Server hostname or FQDN.

Note: 

Avoid using the underscore (_) character in hostnames. Refer to

Note: 

Do not forget to configure reverse DNS lookup for all enabled network cards installed in your server.

Network cards that are not attached to the network must be disabled.
