Team Invitation shows two different host names

Steve Viens (61185) | asked Jul 07 '09, 2:56 p.m.
Notice that the invitation below includes two urls to the same RTC server. The text indicating the new team member can explore the project area points to a host named "" (which is a network alias in the DNS) and the text included in the email that should be copy-pasted into the RTC client indicates a host name "" which is the actual name of the node in DNS.

I'd prefer to use the alias ( but if doing so will have unexpected results then I won't. Anyone got an idea how to fix?

Thanks, that worked. It did require a restart of the server.

You might try this (you'll need to be in the JazzAdmins group):

- Go to the jazz web ui at /jazz/admin
- Go to the Server tab
- In the left nav under Configuration, click Advanced Properties
- Search for the "Host Name" property and set it to the one you'd like to be used
- Scroll back to the top and Save
- My understanding is this should not required a restart of the jazz server (but if its no inconvenience to restart it, you might do that)
- Try sending an invitation again and see if the host name is as you expect.
