SCOM 2012 R2 Linux Monitoring Cert Error



So I was trying to monitor my Linux server, but I kept getting the following error:

The SSL certificate could not be checked for revocation. The server used to check for revocation might be unreachable.......

The selution to this was very simple... when I typed: hostname -f, it returned just the hostname "computer" not the FQN "". once I changed the hostname to the FQN it was able to create the certificate and validate it.
