Finish script should try connect to hostname when IP address is empty
In non-DHCP deployments finish script ssh connection only tries to connect to provisioning IP, but when empty, it could also try to connect to a hostname, if set for the provisioning interface.

What is the use case for this? If we don't know the IP before the host is provisioned and there's no DHCP, then the IP must be hardcoded in the image right? So we know the IP... If there's some valid use case to use DNS for obtaining the IP, then I think it should set the IP of host when the domain is selected (similar to what we do for subnet) rather than trying to auto-guess during connecting. That would be more safe, user could review what IP he or she is trying to run finish script on.

- Status changed from Ready For Testing to Rejected
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
There was a request on the list for support of manually assigned DNS hostnames. The use case is IMHO incorrect configuration/deployment. I agree this is not clean. Closing.
