Did DigitalOcean change the way hostnames are set for droplets from custom images?
It used to be the droplet’s name, but now it seems to be the original hostname. I’m running on a mountain pile of errors from my droplets because of that uninformed change.
Iaas should be reliable. The smallest of changes on the infrastructure can create a catastrophe for some operations, even more if it’s uninformed.
If that’s now a new policy, please, first manage to inform the developers that hold operations in DO before making changes on how the infrastructure behave, and secondly, always put an option for people that developed in the old assumptions of the infrastructure.
Unfortunately that small, uninformed change will hold my operation back for weeks.
