Description of problem:
currently we are not checking for duplicate hostnames when deploying through colonizer.
we check if the host IPs are duplicates but not the hostnames.
Hence the deployment proceeds with duplicate hostnames and fails during volume creation as bricks from different nodes have same brick path as hostnames are same, this leading to an inconsistent environment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. choose hostname and IP selection as manual
3. enter same hostname for 2 nodes
duplicate hostnames are taken and deployment fails during vol creation as bricks paths are duplicate
Ack. We need to add duplicates checking to the hostnames input for manual node information entry.
This is a feature request for the colonizer tool. This feature request is filed as an issue upstream at https://github.com/gluster/gluster-colonizer/issues/66
Closing all Colonizer BZs (as DEFERRED) as we do not intend to work on them for the time being.
