The device namesor the hostname does not appear in the device reports or device centre or in topology map,it appears as the ip address only.

Is there any way to solve this.

Re: Device names/ host names for devices

LMS relies on DNS or local hosts file for name resolution.

Does either of them work on your server?

You just enter the hostnames and IP addresses in the file hosts and do a discovery

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Cheers,

Michel
