Host name strategy

Host name strategyΒΆ

Before installing MKE, plan a single host name strategy to use consistently throughout the cluster, keeping in mind that MKE and MCR both use host names.

There are two general strategies for creating host names: short host names and fully qualified domain names (FQDN). Consider the following examples:

  • Short host name: engine01

  • Fully qualified domain name: node01.company.example.com
