i try to install ejabberd from ejabberd-1.1.3_1-linux-x86-installer.bin.
This seems to work fine, but when i later try to create an admin account 
this does not work.

On top of ejabberdctl are variables for NODE and HOST, which are set to
after installation. Is this correct ?
(btw. what is this NODE for, an where could i set it ?)

The Hostname of this machine is kermit.mercateo.lan, which is registerd 
on our internal DNS-server.
If i use
/opt/ejabberd/bin/ejabberdctl register admin kermit.mercateo.lan xxxxxx
i get "Can't register user "admin at kermit.mercateo.lan" at node 
ejabberd at localhost: not_allowed"
If i change HOST in ejabberdctl to kermit.mercateo.lan i get a huge 
error message with a string "Can't set short node name!".
It seems i need some help here. Could somebody pls point me to the right
