Workflow Manager Installation Error: Adding host to Service Bus Farm

I was trying to get the new workflow engine installed and configured with SharePoint 2013 but was encountering an error in the Service Bus configuration step.

Installation Instruction for Workflow Manager and SharePoint 2013 Workflow Configuration:

The full installation steps are provided here (in a video series): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn201724.aspx and here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj193478

The instructions provided above are pretty detailed and helpful except that I kept getting this error while configuring workflow manager and there was not much to go with online.

The Error:


System.InvalidOperationException:

Program C:\Program Files\Windows Fabric\bin\Fabric\Fabric.Code.1.0\FabricDeployer.exe exited with error: Windows Fabric deployment failed.DeploymentValidator:

warning: The Fabric Data Collection Agent is disabled for this deployment.
None of the declared nodes is for the current machine.


 

Finally i looked at the hosts file on the Developer VM and noticed that I had an entry for 127.0.0.1. Since I was using FQDNs for my workflow configuration, I commented this line and that fixed the error.

so open the file: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts in notepad or a text editor and comment out the line with entries to the local host (127.0.0.1)
