You may just need to wait. When the device enters a Known state in DFM, then it should show up in the Notification Groups device selector.

You need to make sure the device is managed by hostname in DFM. To do this, you may need to add an entry to the server's local hosts file for the device in question. For example:

1.1.1.1 myrouter.company.com

Then, delete the device from DFM, and re-add it. It should then show up in the DFM device selectors as myrouter.company.com. Then all your notifications will have that hostname as the managed object name.

Yes, it works, its appears in the discovery with its name, now the problem is that I do not seem it listed in the notification Groups panel. Do I need to do something more?
