Installing Citrix PVS 7.6 Console

I have installed Citrix PVS server farm and console on the same windows 2008 server. for the farm name I just took the default name and clicked next.
Now when I open up the console, I do not see anything in the console. When I try to connect to a farm from the console, there is nothing in the drop down arrow. I have entered the name of "farm", I am not sure if this is the default name of the farm, but it does not take it, I have entered the name of the server , it does not take it.
below are the screenshots:

you have to enter the netbiosname / DNS-HostName or IP address of the server.
entering the IP bypasses possible problems with name resolution.

after installing the PVS the wizard should guide you through the configuration ...
after this the services should start and the console should be able to connect.
if not ... check the following:
- use "netstat -ano" to check if there is a listener at port 54321
- check if firewall settings are correct (try to disable the firewall for testing only)
- check if all PVS services are started
- try to run the PVS configuration wizard again

I found the link above, so apparently FQDN is not needed in the "Domain" field. Just the name of the domain....and it worked for me
