I am trying to instal Sun Java Directory Server 5

I have installed Vmware 6.5:

My internet conection is working.

# ifconfig -a

        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000

But the Sun Java Directory Server 5 (DS), ask me for FQDN, I don't have a hostname or DNS (just because my DHCP is enable).

So I cannot to complete the install for DS.
Somebody can help me.

Enter expected FQDN hostname in /etc/hosts for 127.0.0.1 besides localhost.
hostname command lets you view and reset kernel setting.
If still no luck we will proceed to setting up full-fledged BIND locally to server for installation

After many install/uninstall:
I have installed the Sun Java System Directory Server 5.2 P4 and updated to 5.2 P6
All the process of instalation was OK, without errors or warnings.
Obvious I use the fake FQDN in the /etc/hosts
I included the following line:
127.0.0.1      srdt1.test.com

But my hostname continue been unknown
# hostname
unknown

Before install the product, I needed to execute the following:
I didn't find the files: /usr/sbin/directoryserver, /usr/sbin/mpsadmserver
So I didn't execute "/usr/sbin/directoryserver configure" and "/usr/sbin/mpsadmserver configure"

When I execute the console (Sun Java System Server Console Login)
./startconsole &
This show me the the login dialog box, but I cannot to enter.
User ID: admin
Password: *****
Administration URL: http://srdt1.test.com:6390
And I don't get to connect to the console.
Error:
Cannot logon because of an incorrect User ID, incorrect password or Directory problem
java.io.interruptedIOException: HTTP response timeout

# more /var/opt/mps/serverroot/admin-serv/config/admpw
admin:{SHA}XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

When I instaled the upgrade, it asked me for the user/pass for the admin and I didn't have problem, but it don't ask me for "Administration URL".

In spide of this, I didn't have problems with a LDAP browser/editor. I can connect from my guest/host and navigate and manage entries.

My host (Windows Vista) have the DHCP enabled with my network.
And my guest (Solaris 10) was instaled with DHCP enabled. Using NAT in the vmware.

So I have tried to comunicate to Directory Server (LDAP) instaled in my guest using other PC in my network and I cannot to connect. I need use a static IP address in my guest?
Anyway, how I can configured the network, so my LDAP in my guest can be seen for other PC in my network. And how I can access to the console.

I just founded the solution myself.

VMWare:
I did a Port Forwarding in the NAT setting of my Virtual Network Editor.
Just Associate the host port (you create a new one or the same one) with the guest port(the same used in the instalation of the Directory Server), and everyone in my public network can access to my guet LDAP Server.

Console Access:
I needed to change my /etc/host
127.0.0.1      srdt1.test.com
 by this one:
192.168.255.128 srdt1.test.com
