INST-08010: Error in validing the port range for auto port allocation

OBIEE Port conflict

Error message : INST-08010: Error in validing the port range for auto port allocation. At Least 2 ports should be free within the range 7500-7500 for the Adminserver and Adminserver SSL

Reason: Host file does not have entry for localhost 


1. Go to windows Run > drivers
2. Open etc/hosts file
3. Add entry localhost hostname

**If it is not letting you save. Open notepad as "Run as administrator" , open host file > edit and save it. 
4. Save and exit

Start the installer again. It successfully installs this time around.
