CQ5.5: javax.jcr.RepositoryException: Unable to register data store in cluster

Issue

If you are installing and starting a new CQ instance you may experience the following exception:

*ERROR* [FelixStartLevel] org.apache.jackrabbit.core.RepositoryImpl failed to start Repository: Unable to register data store in cluster.
javax.jcr.RepositoryException: Unable to register data store in cluster.

Caused by: java.net.UnknownHostException: <server_hostname>: <server_hostname>

Reason

This typically happens if the name returned by the “hostname” command cannot be resolved.

Solution

Add the following entry to /etc/hosts (replacing <server_hostname> with the hostname of the server where the CQ instance is running):

127.0.0.1 <server_hostname>
