Can I rename how VCSA appears - shows as IP address yet resolves via DNS in the web address window

VCSA 6.7

I made a mistake with DNS config before confuguring VCSA  my bad.
Set up vcsa - login and DNS FQDN works in address window
However once I log in it displays as the IP address rather than the name of the vcsa ex vcsa1-67 etc.
Is there a way to change this?
Thanks!  If not we get to reinstall it again ;-)
Doesn't hurt to ask!

Make sure you setup an A record in DNS before you start.

And ReDeploy ( reinstall)

I thought so - thank you!! Yes  I knew I had to do it, Just one of those days!
When you set up vcsa I believe it prompted for the fqdn or IP address.  If you enter the IP address BUT have the DNS entry set before hand, will it pick up the domain name after the install?

Always use FQDNs! for VMware vSphere everywhere and then make sure there is An A record which can be resolved!

see my EE Article

HOW TO: Deploy and Install the VMware vCenter Server Appliance 6.5 (VCSA 6.5)

(although for 6.5!

from that article

Enter the Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) of a VMware vSphere ESXi Host Server, that will host the appliance. Please get used to using FQDN of devices and servers used in your VMware vSphere infrastructure, many failures are observed in Expert Exchange posts, because of non-working DNS. It is very important to have functioning DNS, and ALL servers having registered A Records before starting the installation.

You will get a warning if the System Name of the appliance, is not resolvable to an IP Address. Please make sure you have created a DNS A Record for the FQDN of the appliance before installation has started.
