Didn't need to change anything manually. I just specified the FQDN for that 
specific interface as the nodename in cluster.conf. Worked perfectly.

Earlier I was using the hostname given by `uname -n` as is done with 
heartbeat. The reference link from the wiki said that I could use either the 
DNS name or the IP address as well.
