Dear All,

You have to configure the hostname using the "name" command prior to using the hostname in the snmp command.


name snmp-outside

snmp-server host outside snmp-outside

Please rate and mark all answered questions. Thanks

Dear halijenn,

Thanks you for your command!!!

So my HQ they use DHCP(Public ip address) that why i would like to set domian name to point to my HQ.

Example:  snmp-server host outside abc.net

then it don't care about the public ip address i just to care about domain name only.

is it possible ?

Best Regards,
