Hi Xavier,

I try to would approach it in this way.

* create a custom test script that replicates the "procs" test called 
otherserver-procs.sh.  in the script make sure that the the status is 
coming from "alternatename" instead of "regularname"...

* put a line simliar to this in bb-hosts alternatename.domain.com # noconn
