I run ejabberd with -sname option and this is the line from ejabberdctl:
exec erl -noinput -sname ejabberdctl -s ejabberd_ctl -extra $@
so I think that should match ...

But it is still not working for me because of not running with fully
qualified hostnames:

iws1:/var/lib/ejabberd/ebin# erl -noinput -sname ejabberdctl -s
  ejabberd_ctl -extra ejabberd at iws1.de status
Can't get node 'ejabberd at iws1.de' status: nodedown
=ERROR REPORT==== 26-Sep-2004::16:38:20 ===
** System NOT running to use fully qualified hostnames **
** Hostname iws1.de is illegal **

If I use ejabberd at iws1 instead of ejabberd at iws1.de I get something
iws1:/var/lib/ejabberd/ebin# erl -noinput -sname ejabberdctl -s
  ejabberd_ctl -extra ejabberd at iws1 status
Can't get node ejabberd at iws1 status: nodedown

Thanks for your help!
