RDP Connection mismatch warning

Description of problem:

Currently, in both, the AdminPortal and in the UserPortal, when connections are made the ip address of the guest is used. When the customer is using Internet Explorer and connecting to a Windows guest via RDP, the ip address we pass to the IE ActiveX RDP client causes a domain name mismatch as seen in the attached screenshot.

This may also be a problem if the hosts are running behind a NAT firewall. This can be resolved by using the fqdn reported by the ovirt-guest-agent.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use the Internet Explorer on Windows to connect via RDP to the Virtual machine

Actual results:
The warning as shown in the attachment "RDP Connection mismatch warning" is shown

Expected results:
No such warning is shown
