hostnames in DFM Alerts and Activities

Device names are reflective of an reverse lookup that isn't helpful. We've configured a DNS and pointed the Ciscoworks machine at it as a primary DNS source. The hostnames remain the same. Is this list generated by the client machine browsing the Ciscoworks pages? Is there some way of making the Device Name appear as the device name in device configuration of Ciscoworks and not the reverse lookup?

DFM is the only application in LMS that does not respect the DCR display name. The best you can hope for is the result of the IP to name lookup. This is set when the device is added to DFM.
