When trying to open a K2 Form there is a prompt to create a new token. However, when clicking the link to create a new token a "Authorization not Successful No such host is known" error appears.

Troubleshooting Steps

Fiddler is a great tool to see where the redirects are pointing to.

Check the Identity web.config file in the following location: [INSTALLDIR]\K2 blackpearl\Webservices\Identity/Web.config

Make sure that the Host in the Connection String and the HostName in <AppSettings/> are the same. It should look something like below.
<add name="HostServer" connectionString="Integrated=True;IsPrimaryLogin=True;Authenticate=True;EncryptedPassword=False;Host=SA-LABSDLX;Port=5555" />
<add key="webpages:Version" value="" />
<add key="webpages:Enabled" value="false" />
<add key="PreserveLoginUrl" value="true" />
<add key="ClientValidationEnabled" value="true" />
<add key="UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled" value="true" />
<add key="HostName" value="SA-LABSDLX" />
<add key="HostPort" value="5555" />
