+* (MB-7398) There's now full support of assigning symbolic hostnames
+ to cluster nodes that replaces old "manual" and kludgy
+ procedure. Now as part of node setup wizard there's input field to
+ assign it a name. When node is added to cluster as part of Add
+ Server button (or corresponding REST API), then IP address or name
+ that's used to specify that node is attempted to be assigned to this
+ node.
+
+ There's also new REST API call for renaming node.
+
+ POST to /node/controller/rename with hostname parameter will trigger
+ node rename.
+
+ Using hostnames instead of relying on built-in detection of node ip
+ address is recommended in environments where ip addresses are
+ volatile. I.e. EC2 or developer's laptop(s) in network where
+ addresses are assigned via DHCP.
