This might or might not work, we do not test this scenario.

In any case it goes directly against procedures in official docs:


... so do not be surprised if things break.

In general we strongly recommend to use a dedicated machine for IdM server for
security reasons. There should be no technical reason not to use FQDN hostname
for a dedicated VM as the requirement for short names as hostname usually
comes from crappy applications.
