what is the CA recommendation about to configure your applications, using hostname or ip address?
Are you asking about the use of hostname/IP Address in the overall communications between all the APM components i.e. Enterprise Managers (EMs) and agents?
In general either option can be used as long as it is reliable. Some specific points:
I hope that information helps. Please let us know if you have more specific questions.
Hi Lynn,I appreciate your response, this is exactly that it I want to know. Thanks
Was Lynn's note helpful? Seeing no follow-up questions so marking as answered. Looking forward to your response
Today, with APM 10.5.2, a customer tried to access the TeamCenter & Webview with an IP address of a local dev machine.
However, Webview issues a redirect with a Location: HTTP field that use the hostname of the webview (it didn't keep the IP he entered in the URL).
That dev hostname was not known by the Windows server and therefore the HTTP console couldn't work.
I would recommend to always use logical defined DNS names for Agent, EM and Webview.
During APM migration to different servers, you can redirect agents to a new EM easily just by changing the DNS.
