More on Installing a Comms 5 Calendar Server 6.3 Deployment (Front End and Back End)

A co-worker has correctly pointed out in the comments that I have this not quite right. It is the configurator.sh script itself that is causing the problem. You do not have the option while running the script to choose between IP address and hostname. The script basically choose the IP address rather than the hostname. But again, the fix is afterwards to manually update the ics.conf file for the parameter mentioned below.

As I mentioned in a previous post this week, there's a Calendar Server 6.3 install issue that I want to make folks aware of.
When you use the configurator.sh script to configure your Calendar Server front end, in a front end/back end deployment, as described here, your are supposed to use a fully qualified domain name for the back-end host the front end is pointing to that you will use DWP to commmunicate with. If by mistake you put in an IP address of the host instead, which evidently the script lets you do, the configuration will not work. And then you'll have to manually go back and enter the FQDN of the host instead of the IP address for caldb.dwp.server.backend.ip in the ics.conf file.
And yes, we do have a bug (CR) filed for this.
