PSC : Firstboot script execution error

I installed a test PSC today and right at the end of the installation an error popped up "Firstboot script execution error".







After looking through the log files I found the following:

Solution:


In my haste for testing i forgot to setup the A-records in DNS for the new PSC appliance.
The problem can also be related to providing the wrong DNS name during the installation wizard.
