i'm rather new to Centera and its sdk. The customer's system administrator has asked me to use aliases in my connection string instead of ip addresses. For example, having the following :
i should use "CENTERA_01,CENTERA_02,CENTERA_03?file.pea" instead of "192.168.0.1,192.168.0.2,192.168.0.3?file.pea" . Is this possible (all example and tutorial i've found use ip addresses) .
If it's possible , what are the aliases of Centera online Clusters (i cannot access the customer's cluster) .
thank you in advance

Hello Stefano -
Yes, hostnames are perfectly valid in Centera connection strings. Of course, this assumes that the application host is able to map these hostnames to IP addresses via either a DNS query or the local 'hosts' file.
