You can set the 'host', 'console_host' and 'console_public_hostname'
parameters in your nova.conf file to override the default value (which is
hostname). If you do that, you'll have to delete manually the old entries
from the db though.
At some point [1], Nova switched to use FQDN for service names but this has
been reverted [2]. I think that the same happened for Neutron too.
