    The business partner we collaborate with to get support for DRBD and Pacemaker have confirmed they do not recommend the use of DNS names because this can lead to unexpected behaviour if/when DNS names cannot be resolved, or if they resolve to a different IP address.

    Therefore, although it is understood why customers might want to use DNS names, we need to decline this Idea as a restriction of the DRBD and Pacemaker components that are used by RDQM.
