Hi Swen,

So you need an extra parameter with name ‘fqdn’. Does that simply also need to contain
the name of the vm or really the FQDN? Because I cannot see a FQDN set in the vm object and
if there is it would most likely be different per nic. Please let me know.

"hostname", which is providing the fqdn of the vm.
