FileBeat doesn't understand FQDN

There seems to be a bug in FileBeat under Windows where Filebeat ignores the domain and assumes it can try contact Kafka with just a hostname. This fails when the filebeat is running in a different domain and the host is not reachable

  hosts: [""]

The error is:

2022-02-25T10:29:29.583+0100	INFO	kafka/log.go:53	producer/broker/0 state change to [closing] because dial tcp: lookup server1: no such host

The workaround is to add the following to the hosts file:

<IP of server1>      server1

After this it works. So the filebeat kafka filter seems to just remove when it resolves the host.
