Hello,


Devices in DFM are not shown by hostname they ae shown by IP address,but the devices in DCR and any other module i.e CM,IPM,RME are shown by hostnames.I tried by deleting the devices and re importing them manuall but no results.


Thanks.

to have the devices with hostnames in DFM, their management IP must be in DNS or in the hosts file of the server.
You can check if a device is resolvable in DNS by using this script:
NMSROOT\bin\resolver.pl
Once a device is added to DFM it will not change its display name, thus you'll have to delete the device and readd it to DFM once you have checked that the name resolution does work.
