Resolve Hostname using Windows etc

Unanswered Question
Jul 26th, 2009

Hi Experts,

I am currently configuring LMS 3.1 to discover devices and display device name using Hostname instead of IP address.

However, IP address in DNS is not bind with the hostname due to some constraints. I have tried to resolve this issue by configuring IP addresses and hostnames under Windows etc folder, hostname file but the problem still persists.

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards,

Yi Shyuan

I have this problem too.

This sounds like CSCsv65933 which is fixed in LMS 3.2.


The Device Credential Repository display name attribute is not updated after running Discovery despite the "Update DCR Display Name" box being checked.


This occurs for Common Services 3.2 Discovery.


To have the DCR display name reflect the correct value, the device must be manually edited under Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management.

Hi Joe,

After the device is being edited under Common Services, I found out that if I do another round of discovery, DCR will have duplicate device entry. E.g. Device A will have two entries being displayed using Hostname and IP address.

Please advise.

There may be a problem with reading the ipAddrTables on your devices. But I would recommend you upgrade to LMS 3.2 first to rule out issues with the bug I already mentioned.

Hi Joe,

Any link or documentation on upgrading LMS 3.1 to 3.2?

Hi Joe,

Forgot to check with you if the upgrading free as my license is LMS 3.1?

Hi Joe,

Where can i get the installation software then? Any link to download?

Hi Joe,

The link only allows me to download evaluation version of LMS 3.2.

Do I have to uninstall LMS 3.1 to run LMS 3.2 installation?

The eval becomes a fully-licensed copy with your existing 3.1 license. No, you do not need to uninstall LMS 3.1 first. Just use the instructions in the install guide link I provided earlier.
