ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS
The application server was recently moved from a RHEL6 server to a RHEL7 server. The RHEL7 server has a misconfiguration in the /etc/hosts file which caused it to look to DNS instead of locally it resolve port 8801.
/etc/hosts configuration was corrected.
No steps can be put in place to correct for human error.
