Hi,


I can't obtain a list by sysname for the discovered devices. I just get a list by IP addresses. What could be wrong?

The Global settings of "Device Discovery" are :

"Preferred DCR Display Name" : Hostname

Update DCR Display Name

"Preferred Management IP" : Resolve by Name


LMS 3.2

CSS 3.3.0


Thanks

Are those IP addresses resolvable in DNS or the server's local hosts file?  Use the resolver.pl tool to confirm:


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/resolver.pl IP


The IPs must be resolvable to see them by hostname.

Hi,

Thank you.
They are not resolvable in DNS. But is it possible to list devices by sysname (and how)?


Thanks

This is not yet possible.  I have an enhancement request open for this in CSCte52999.
