I am installing CER (188.8.131.5200-11) and have completed the Platform Configuration Wizard for the Publisher.
I will be installing a Subscriber CER; so I logged into the Publisher CER and attempted to add the Subscriber (System --> Add Subscriber). The Publisher Hostname is 21 characters in length; and I want also to have the Subscriber Hostname be 21 characters; but it only seems to be able to take 20. Is 20 characters the maximum for the hostname for the Subscriber???
Also; I now want to delete the incorrectly added hostname I used for the Subscriber; but I don't see any way to do that under the System --> Add Subscriber page.
Is there some way to delete the Subscriber entry from the Publisher???
The TAC wasn't able to find any anything documented for the maximum character limit when adding the Subscriber hostname to the Publisher; but did attempt adding a Subscriber to his lab CER Publisher (8.5) and hit the same 20 character limit.
We were NOT able to delete the Subscriber hostname from the Publisher.
The only resolution we have is to rebuild the Publisher.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
