When I run "erl -name some_name" on Linux machine I get this:

where DHGROUP is our workgroup. I then run "erl -name
" on my Windows box and try to call it from Linux:

    rpc:call(,kvs,store, [weather, fine]).


    =ERROR REPORT==== 5-Jul-2007::10:08:13 ===
    ** System running to use fully qualified hostnames **
    ** Hostname turkeyhotels is illegal **
    {badrpc,nodedown}
