Hello! I add device in Device and Credentials with IP, hostname, domain name and credentials for snmp. Then add it manually to DFM. But DFM shows this device only by IP address. As I know it must use DNS name if it possible to resolve device in DNS server. Records in DNS about device was made. How can I configure DFM to show device by DNS name or other name?
DFM does not respect the DCR display name, so the only way to make a device show up in DFM by a name is to make sure reverse DNS is working at the time the device is managed by DFM. That is, the IP address must resolve to the desired name. If DNS was setup after DFM managed the device, remove the device from DFM, and re-add it.
I have a simillar problem with DFM as well as other CW LMS Apps not showing Device Names. Unfortunatelly I did not manage to follow your advice. 1)I found the file you speak about but in a different location: NMSROOT/objects/smarts/conf/discovery/discovery.conf 2) I cannot locate dmgmtd at all. Can you help? Mirek
I am using Win version of CiscoWorks. I managed to locate dmgtd in the end, however, in a different location. Anyway it seems that the Win version of dmgtd does not support start and stop commands. I restarted the machine, removed/added the device/s in question from CS and it started to work in DFM and even in CM.
Later I set the NameFormat from TM_USEAUTONAME back to TM_USESEEDNAME and it wokrs too. It appears that removing/adding the devices from CS is enough. I summarized the steps which worked for me below:
