Regarding the HTTP listeners configuration I read: IP Address — A Valid IPv4 or IPv6 address. “” implies that the HTTP Listener will listen to all IP addressed for the configured port.*
(no mention to hostnames)
I have tested that it is also possible to specify a NAME in the IP Address field and the effect is the same if I specify the explicit IP the name is associated.
Is it a supported but not documented feature ?
In other words can I use this feature for my deployment ?
It seems like I was wrong, you can not use hostname in <ip> element. Code doesn't try to convert hostname to <ip> address.
When you said that it worked for you, can you show the output of "netstat -an | grep <listen_port>".
Sorry about the incorrect comments. I looked at more carefully and it seems like we try to convert hostname to ip address and it worked well for me.
I don't know why support team told that it is not supported.
