      Description

      Some KMIP appliances appear to use an internal replication system to ensure keys are distributed across multiple physical servers. Instead of backing a single hostname with multiple machines through a High Availability infrastructure, they seem to be relying on clients to perform some operation analogous to our Server Discovery and Monitoring to find a working server with the data they're requesting.

      We need to be able to specify multiple hostnames to kmipServerName to enable our client to fallback to backup KMIP servers if it encounters network errors.
