Default hostname for the operating system is rds. You can change it by modifying the /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts files.

Also, in the /rds/home/rds-user/chromium-default-settings.tar there are three files called Singleton*. One of them, SingletonLock -> rds-xxxx, is the issue. Once this file is removed, sysrtem works with the new hostname (as Chromium creates SingletonLock file with the correct new hostname).

Thanks to Stepan Kocourek.

cd /rds/home/rds-user/
tar -xf chromium-default-settings.tar
rm chromium/Singleton*
tar -cf chromium-default-settings.tar chromium/
rm -R chromium
chown rds-user:rds-user chromium-default-settings.tar
