EGO_MASTER_LIST supports DNS alias

The client would like to be able to specify alias DNS name instead of official hostname for EGO_MASTER_LIST in ego.conf.

For example, there are below master, master candidate, management hosts in the cluster. The left side is their official host name. The right side is their alias name.

dpdevom01 master
idpdevom02 mastercandidate
idptstom01 ssm1
idptstom02 ssm2

The client would like all the cluster hosts (including all compute, client, and management hosts) to use

EGO_MASTER_LIST="master mastercandidate"

in ego.conf.

instead of "dpdevom01 idpdevom02"

For Alias DNS definition please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNAME_record

    We have a roadmap project tracking this request already. Close the duplicated project track.

    Just a quick question
    If IP address changed later, it seems that this configuration host file needs to be modified again to support alias?
