I have created some email notifications in DFM to alert me if a switch becomes unresponsive. However, I would like to know if it is possible to change the alert to give me the hostname of the switch instead of the ip address. I basically want to just modify the field "MANAGED OBJECT" from an ip address to the corresponding hostname. Is this possible? Here is what the alert looks like.
EVENT ID = 000015Y
ALERT ID = 00000TL
TIME = Tue 18-Nov-2008 15:00:56 PST
STATUS = Active
SEVERITY = Critical
MANAGED OBJECT = 172.16.253.113
MANAGED OBJECT TYPE = Switches and Hubs
EVENT DESCRIPTION = Unresponsive::Component=172.16.254.98
The address must not be translated correctly by the system resolver. Java is particular when it comes to resolving addresses to hostnames. Try adding the address and name to the local hosts file, then try removing the device, and re-syncing it.
