Description Paul Kennedy 2008-01-31 15:07:54 EST
Description of problem:
Cannot enter fully qualified hostname for IP Address resource. When configuring
IP Address resource with a hostname, luci asks for fully qualified hostname;
however, there is not enough space to enter it.

For example, entering hostname "rg-218" and clicking "Submit" causes this error
message to be displayed:
  The following errors were found:
  Error:"rg218: Hostnames must be fully qualified.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Paul Kennedy 2008-01-31 15:11:10 EST
NOTE: In original comments, the error message should have been this (added
hyphen in hostname):

The following errors were found:
Error:"rg-218": Hostnames must be fully qualified.
Comment 2 Ryan McCabe 2008-01-31 15:13:02 EST
What is the actual hostname?

You can work around this by partially qualifying the hostname, too. For example,
something like "rg-218.lab" would be accepted. The heuristics for the check in
the javascript are about as basic as possible: if you don't enter an IP address,
it just checks for at least one dot in the hostname.
Comment 3 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2008-02-05 11:33:10 EST
For 5.2, only allow IP addresses instead of hostnames.
Comment 7 Brian Brock 2008-05-14 22:07:24 EDT
verified in -7.el5, generates a helpful error message upon attempting to use FQDN.
