Is this JIRA still valid?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Ambari
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: ambari-server
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.4
>            Reporter: Sumit Mohanty
>            Assignee: Sumit Mohanty
>             Fix For: 2.1.0
> Host registration commonly fails on two scenarios:
> 1) Agent machine can't make it back to Server (results in failed host register because
Server never sees host register)
> 2) Agent machine registers with Server under a _different_ hostname than Server expected
(results in failed register because Server thinks host never registered)
> Need to consider how to make these scenarios 1) easier to troubleshoot 2) more clear
to the user 3) provide paths out of this situation (warn, retry, remove)
> One limiting factor we have during registration currently is that we are assuming a hostname
matches up. One (possible) way to alleviate this can be to provide a context, which can be
any random string, that we send to the host which is returned during the registration call.
If we can somehow match the context with what the host provides, we can then offer some meaningful
warnings if there is a hostname mismatch.
> We would have to do this BEFORE saving the hostname in the database.
> Such a mechanism cannot block registration because, for example, we offer custom host
name scripts from the agent. In that case, either a) the hostnames will match up anyway because
registration is manual at that point or b) the user knows what he's doing and can just skip
past it.
> FE should consider reporting the unmatched host names along with hosts that failed to
register. This will make it easy to debug the issue.
