Can you use a hostname instead of an IP address in devstack?

I would like the public endpoints created by running ./ to contain a hostname instead of the IP address of the VM on which the devstack is running. That way I could develop the clients and Horizon locally by resolving the hostname to the public IP address of the VM. However, when I try to do that by setting:


The endpoints will be as I want them to be, but then the etcd service doesn't start because that expects an IP address:

etcdmain: error verifying flags, expected IP in URL for binding (http://devstack-host:2379). See 'etcd --help'

Is there any way a setup like this is possible by changing the configuration of the devstack?

It's etcd that insists on an IP address. I don't know why, but see

Since Devstack uses SERVICE_HOST as a parameter to etcd, I am afraid you have to change the code to achieve this.
