Riak startup issue

Hi all,

I am trying to deploy Riak on fresh nodes via cookbooks that have been
fully tested and implemented in another environment and am hitting an issue
whereby Riak won't start.


Essentially what I am seeing is :
** System running to use fully qualified hostnames *
** Hostname localhost is illegal *

I have the node bootstrapped correctly , the hostname is set to be it's
FQDN , everything looks fine.

In my app.config I have (address obfuscated of course)

{http, [
{"192.168.x.x", 8098},
{"", 8098}

This works fine , I listen on to facilitate polling stats etc.

vm.args uses the nodes FQDN also.

Is there anything obvious here that could be causing this ? I just don't
get where it's getting localhost from here.

Thanks !
