You can set FQDN="FALSE" in xymonserver.cfg, and it should work just like
your old BB server.

A quick way of setting "testip" for all hosts is to add a ".default." at
the top of hosts.cfg: .default. # testip

If you need to turn it off again somewhere, just define it again, but
blank: .default. #

But of course, using fqdn's really is the best solution.
