Description

Several sliver requests in the GPO InstaGENI Rack this morning have resulted in nodes which did not have the client_id requested in the RSpec. As an example, the sliver IG-EXP-6-exp2 in the GPO rack requested the following client_ids:

<node client_id="GPO-VM"
component_manager_id="urn:publicid:IDN+instageni.gpolab.bbn.com+authority+cm"
exclusive="false">

<node client_id="GPO-PC"
component_manager_id="urn:publicid:IDN+instageni.gpolab.bbn.com+authority+cm"
exclusive="true">

But the nodes that are available are named "vhost1" and "pc5" and not as requested "GPO-VM" and "GPO-PC".

This has occurred several times on the GPO rack, but has not happened with requests to the Utah Rack. Is this an issue?

Agreed this is very minor, as the ticket was originally marked. Is there a known issues page were we can capture this?

Hostnames that are too long are still not handled, and request for documentation in known issues still not found.
