Front end server defaulted to 127.0.0.1, is it normal?

Front end server defaulted to 127.0.0.1, is it normal?

  

Hi, on my on-premised server, I notice the front end server was defaulted to 127.0.0.1, not using hostname or server ip.

Is it normal?

Thanks.


Update:

After changing IP address to correct one, then rebooting the server, it goes back to 127.0.0.1 again...

Any help?

Is this normal behavior for standalone server?

I would think it isn't. I'll ask around to see what can cause this.

Thanks for replying...

My server is Java stack standalone 10.0.200.0

Hi Harlin, 

The front-end nodes auto-register themselves when services are started. 

In configuration tool , there's a section under Farm configuration that looks like this:

Local IP Address for Front-End Registration:
  1 - (automatic)
  2 - 192.168.170.110
      or enter an address

-------------------------------------------------

This should be the Ip the front-end node uses for the Registration.

Can you validate what is the ip used there?

Either way, if you only have 1 front-end node, I would not worry a lot with that setting, 

because it's purpose is for you to determine which server is which and there's only 1.
