Q: Can I change the value of /server/hostName property?
A: No, this is not allowed.
|ectool setProperty /server/hostName
'/server/hostName' is not a settable property
means that you cannot change the value of /server/hostName. It is one of the immutable properties.
When trying to detect the server host IP and name, ElectricFlow goes over the available interfaces and picks one.
That said, if you want to reference somecustomhostname:
- either configure the IP address of the Flow server to resolve to somecustomhostname
- or create your own property, set it to somecustomhostname, and use it instead of the hostName.
