VCA quits when configured with an invalid VCRM host

Platform: RHEL4 update 8
VCA version: hpvca-2.2.1-2

I have noticed a problem with HP VCA running on a Linux host. After installation of the RPM I use the System Management Homepage, Version Control Agent to specify the Computer Name of the VCRM. The VCA agent is running.

# /etc/init.d/hpvca status
vcagentd (pid 24357) is running...

When I specify a name that cannot be resolved the VCA window freezes. From the command line I can see the VCA agent stopped working.

# /etc/init.d/hpvca status
vcagentd is stopped

There are no messages in the logs.

It is also possible to use the script
/opt/hp/vcagent/etc/vcaconfig.sh
to configure the VCA. In this case an error appears in the log when the hostname cannot be resolved.

The repository specified, , could not be accessed using the specified account and password.

Can someone confirm this is a bug in the Linux HP VCA?
