    Issue: In the Command Line Interface, the array will incorrectly accept a DNS name for the address for the SMNP, SMTP, and NTP servers. The array does not use DNS, and will not be able to connect to the server correctly. Workaround: Instead of network names, enter the IP addresses for the servers.
