KBEC-00182 - Working around hostName property

Summary

Q: Can I change the value of /server/hostName property?
A: No, this is not allowed.

ectool setProperty /server/hostName <someNewValue> ectool error \[PropertyNotSettable\]: '/server/hostName' is not a settable property Details: '/server/hostName' is not a settable property

The messageExplanation

'/server/hostName' is not a settable property
means that you cannot change the value of /server/hostName. It is one of the immutable properties.

Workaround

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.
