We are running LMS 2.6.

Is it possible to generate a report which has details of Device IP address and hostname.

Presently for Device name it shows IP Address (it should be hostname).

Can someone help me out!!

LMS works with a display name that can get filled in when a device is discovered. If IP to name resolution fails the IP is used.

I don't think there is a way to trigger LMS to recheck the DNS and update the display name for it discovered hosts.

This means it has to work right at the time the device gets discovered.

For this to work I found a local host file is probably the most effective.

After having checked you tolled Campus to try and resolve IP addresses to DNS names on discovery you should keep an up to date or maybe even slightly in advance host file with the loopback IP address and the name you like to be used.

when nameresolution is working as miheg said you can do the following to update LMS when DNS hostname changes for devices occure :

make a backup of the following file and change this two option as follows:




restart the processes and it should work

(windows: net stop crmdmgtd / net start crmdmgtd

solaris: /etc/init.d/dmgtd stop [start]

Right indeed Martin.

Only DFM is not following there. There you need to delete and rediscover
