In the near term, we will be moving from an onsite IBM i to one in the
cloud. Our onsite IBM i has a 192.168.x.x address. The cloud system will
have a 10.x.x.x address.

We have an internal DNS entry that points myibmi.dilgardfoods.local to the
192.168.x.x address. When we make the move I will change that DNS entry to
point to the 10.x.x.x address.

In preparation for this I have gone around to every desktop with ACS and
made sure that all defined sessions (.hod files) are pointing to
myibmi.dilgardfoods,local so that when we make the move, I don't need to go
around to every desktop. (And that myibmi.dilgardfoods.local is defined in
the System Configurations.)

For some reason, on my desktop, the Destination Address within the session
definitions keep getting changed to a hardcoded 192.168.x.x address. I
have changed them /repeatedly/ to myibmi.dilgardfoods.local and they keep
getting changed back to the IP address. I have not determined exactly when
this is happening.

I have looked at 2 other desktops so far and this is /not/ happening at
those desktops. Their session definitions are staying at
myibmi.dilgardfoods.local. I do not see any difference in the System
Configuration from those desktops to mine.

Any idea what might be causing this?
