Issue/Introduction

The logs show the following URL for the VSE server:
tcp:://ip-10-11-2-1.mydomain.com:2013/VSE

Where does this hostname (ip-10-11-2-1) come from and can I change this to the actual hostname.

Environment

All supported DevTest releases.

Cause

N/A

Resolution

A hostname of this format is most likely coming from DNS.

To confirm this run:
nslookup 10.11.2.1

A different name can configured by adding the following to .vmoptions for VSE:
-Dlisa.vseName=tcp://myserver.mydomain.com:2013/VSE

or by adding the following to local.properties: 
lisa.vseName=tcp://myserver.mydomain.com:2013/VSE

To override DNS, it is also possible to configure /etc/hosts with the IP address and the desired hostname.
