You shouldn't have to if the hostname of the computer is the same - either via DNS or /etc/hosts.  The key is whether the name of your node actually is actually riak at storage-1.  This should be set in vm.args already if the names are actually applied as you say.  To double check, attach to the running node with `riak-admin attach` (or start it with `riak console`) and see what it says at the prompt.
