When i look at my devices in the DCR, some of the devices have their ip address as the hostname.

Some device are ok and are showing their hostname as the display name.

in global settings the preffered DCR display name is the hostname.

What might cause the devices to show the ip address as the display name ?

Any ideas ?

Is the IP address found as the preferred management IP is not resolvable, then the display name will be the IP address.  You can use the NMSROOT/bin/ tool to test to make sure these IPs are resolvable:

NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/ IP
