In this forum post two interesting things happened:

(1) The user could not figure out from the error message what to do (2) The user was thought providing different names would define different servers

This JIRA item is to evaluate whether we should either update the error message, this would address (1). The message should maybe include the “names” to help illuminate the issue

Or perhaps we should treat “name” as the hostname if it is not defined in the element. This seems to have been the users expectation.

If host element is not provided, then make it default to the server name.

Also when improve the error message.
