However, a ping showed me that the FQDN resolved just fine.  A little digging turned up an issue I was not aware of – the install routing will try both a name resolution and an IP lookup – returning “The Fully Qualified Domain Name cannot be resolved.” if either search fails.  I have not specifically had a problem , but I’ll go make the PTR entry just to be sure.
