Solution

Verify that all PureDisk nodes have the correct configuration for name resolution by using tools such as dig or nslookup.  Check DNS name server entries in /etc/resolv.conf or utilise the /etc/hosts file.  Once configuration has been confirmed it will be necessary to restart PureDisk services.
