site address incorrect?

Hi all,

      After devoting a full 24 hours to installing ags 10.1, I was able to share the proper folders with the local arcgis account and used these directories with the site creator. My computer name is GM2, my directories all start with GM2, i.e. "\\GM2\arcgisserver\directories\arcgisoutput". That seems to checkout, my problem is with my site manager login url, it still remains as "http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager/login.html", shouldn't "localhost" be "GM2"? and won't this keep me from accessing my published services in my javascript code?

      If someone could confirm this as an issue, or point out my mistake, I would be grateful to say the least. I'm a recent GIS graduate and as they don't teach web mapping or the arcgis server platform, I thought I would take matters into my own hands. Help me out GIS community!
