Overriding the machine name

Component: NServiceBus
NuGet Package: NServiceBus (8-pre)
This page targets a pre-release version. Pre-releases are subject to change and samples are not guaranteed to be fully functional.

The machine name is used by various components. For example:

  • NServiceBus adds diagnostics headers to every message that is dispatched.
  • The MSMQ transport uses the machine name for routing.

The host machine name of an endpoint instance may be overridden if the endpoint instance is uniquely identifiable:

endpointConfiguration.UniquelyIdentifyRunningInstance()
    .UsingHostName(Dns.GetHostEntry(Environment.MachineName).HostName);

Fully qualified domain names

A common override is to use the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of a machine for either routing or for identification.
