i would go for the fqdn
if the IP were to change, you don't need to change that there later

Get used to using FQDN, and make sure that your DNS is plugged in, and working correctly.

Plug all your IP Addresses into DNS.

This is really paramount with any vSphere infrastructure.

and Reverse DNS as well.

Andrew , currently the ID store connection is an IP , I have argued that this should be changed to a FQDN , I am sure you argee. I know I can google this myself , but do you have a link that I can send up the chain that would convince the powers at  be to let me change it?

thanks again!!!!

ALL your VMware Infrastructure and networking should be based on FQDNs.

VMware vSphere is as only good as it's networking and DNS.

Bad DNS, IP addresses, and BAD vSphere. and issues.

I'm not sure if you'll find a document, that says "use common sense!"

If you look at VMware HA troubleshooting, it's full of FQDN..

Do you not manage your DNS ?

use ping FQDN

use tracert FQDN

use tracert IP Address

use nslookup

because you also need to have DNS and Reverse DNS lookups working, one of the major issues with vSphere issues, is not vSphere, but the networking, and that points to the DNS team!, and physical network teams!
