      Description

      Currently, the GSSAPI service name for a mongo server is hardcoded to mongodb, and the hostname for authentication purposes is found by calling getHostName(). This requires customers to have a working DNS setup, and to not use CNAMEs to identify mongo nodes to clients.

      A solution that allows customers to use CNAMEs is to allow system admins to optionally override at startup the hostname used by the server for purposes of sasl authentication.
