dns problem in apache


I am running scientific linux (which is clone of red hat linux) on virtual machine that is virtual box.
I tried to start the apache but I got the following message.
starting httpd: httpd: arp_sockaddr_info_get() failed for scientific-linux
httpd: could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

and when I try to access the server from my host computer (the host of the guest OS that run in the virtual box) I get a message that it could not reach the server.

How can I solve it and allow the httpd server to consider its IP address as it server name?
