vCenter Appliance Upgrade Error - 5.1 to 6.0

Im on the 'Connect to Source Appliance' screen, and it says:

"vcenterserver FQDN vcenter.companyname.local does not match DNS servers "localhost.localdom," and ip address from VC Certificate

"Examine the VC certificate and make sure it is valid and point to vCenterServer FQDN"

Any thoughts?

You should really give your vCenter Server a correct Fully Qualified Domain Name, and Hostname.

This should be registered in your DNS Servers, against a static IP Address, or the installation is going to fail.

you should also before the installation, you can PING the FQDN and Hostname correctly.

and then obtain a SSL certificate which matches the host name, and FQDN.

Vcenter has a static ip and resolved via DNS and is pingable.

On that link, my admin page is blank, even though i tried rebooted vcenter and 3 different web browsers.
