FQDN not full

Recommended Posts

How does ERA agent obtain FQDN name of a computer it is running on?

I have one computer, which FQDN equals to its hostname, as such it is not renamed by "Rename task".

I have proper DNS set up as well as I can nslookup the IP in question, which returns FQDN name, not only the hostname.

What could be the problem here?

You have not mentioned platform, but on Windows, native API call GetComputerNameEx with type ComputerNameDnsFullyQualified is used. Official Microsoft documentation for this call states:


The fully qualified DNS name that uniquely identifies the local computer. This name is a combination of the DNS host name and the DNS domain name, using the form HostName.DomainName. If the local computer is a node in a cluster, lpBuffer receives the fully qualified DNS name of the cluster virtual server.
