No need to add IP Address and hostname in the host file even though servers has same common name

The customer has 2 or more Domino Servers with same common name.

Then, please see the scenario below:

1. Create a shortcut of Database in Notes Client

2. Right-click on the Database and Open on Designer

3. Check the Database opened on Designer and you'll see that different organization server is opened.

Note: If there are more than one servers with the same common name, you'd end up hitting the wrong server.

Current workaround would be adding hostnames together with the IP Address in the host file.

Lastly, no workaround as of the moment since this is working by design that you need to add hostnames together with the IP Address in the host file.

    Registered NDIS Services support independent travel as far as possible, with the principles of information and access elevated across the board so that clienteles with agility complications have more self-assurance in traveling.

    We already use connection documents. That's how we associate server names with ip addresses. This feature was working normally before eclipse client i.e Notes 8.5. Because of this bug, we're stuck into using the old client.
