Avoid trouble: IPC_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS is a special end point. The end point can be assigned an IP address or can be defined as'localhost'. Editing a hostname definition from 'localhost' to any other host is not permitted if you plan to use this same server as a template to create another server in another node and which is to have an end point definition different than host.gotcha
