Description Dennis Gilmore 2010-06-23 09:14:23 EDT
Description of problem:

running install.pl I encountered 
satellite.test doesn't have 3 fields (111.222.333). Can't be FQDN.
Use --skip-fqdn-test to bypass this error.

this check is completely erroneous and really gains nothing.

internally i could use say .corp  and i want my satellite box to be satellite.corp.  then if i were in the uk and wanted to use my public domain   of foo.co.uk and call my box satellite.foo.co.uk  the check wont make sure that i don't accidently call it foo.co.uk since it is valid according to the bogus assumptions made in the install.pl script.  I think that the check should just be removed as there is no way to reliably determine if the fqdn is really valid or not as that will vary widely depending on the environment.
