OpenNebula's Frontend and all the Hosts need to be able to resolve, either by DNS or by /etc/hosts the names of all the other Hosts and Frontend.

If you don't have a local DNS server, you should add in the /etc/hosts of every host a few lines mapping the IP address and the hostname of every host, e.g.: opennebula abc cde

The problem is your DNS configuration. OpenNebula cannot resolve the given hostname.

Maybe you should look into your DNS config and make sure that the names a resolvable.
