      Downstream Change Summary

      Following points should be added to documentation:

      • when configuring cluster for split horizon, IP addresses should not be used instead of host names
      • configuration when IP address is used for a host name will be rejected
      • it is possible to override such behavior using disableSplitHorizonIPCheck=true parameter
      • if cluster configuration is found to have an IP address in split horizon during cluster startup, the error would not prevent node from starting. This is done for scenarios when a node that is already configured was recently upgraded. Configuration changes happening after startup will still be rejected

      Description of Linked Ticket

      SERVER-49081 made it so that the replSetInitiate or replSetReconfig commands would be unable to accept IP addresses in their split horizon definitions, unless a special setParameter was toggled.

      Unfortunately, it introduced the check in a validation function which is exercised at startup. This prevents nodes with IP addresses in their split horizon definitions from starting up.
