I've installed a new 8.5 server on a RH base (actually CentOS). The install was fine, but the remote setup (from a windows admin client) fails at 1% (after all the configuration data has been entered) with a 'Network Communications Error'.
That's all the information it gives, no sign of any problems in the setuplog.txt or on the server console.
I can't run the setup locally as it's a hosted box and doesn't have an XServer running (I suppose I could install X, but I'd rather not have to).
I can't tell where the network error is - it's connecting to a second hosted box which is the master directory, back to the remote setup box (though that got through the configuration screens fine), or could even be a loopback problem I suppose.
Both boxes have the firewall set to allow any traffic from the other server, and from my internal network.
Nothing useful on Google or EE on the subject at all. Has anyone else come across this, or got any brilliant ideas. I'm going to try a re-install next while I wait.
