Discover Device Name in CM

When I do a discovery wtih CM it puts the loopback address into the device name. Is there any way to make it put the hostname into the device name catagory?

That can be changed in the ANIServer.properties file.

nameserver.useloopbackaddress=true

this could also be set to false.

On unix it's:

johnsonr@nmsccm01 > pwd

/opt/CSCOpx/campus/etc/cwsi

johnsonr@nmsccm01 > ls ANIServer.properties

ANIServer.properties

johnsonr@nmsccm01 >

There isn't any line

nameserver.useloopbackaddress=true

I'm trying to make it use the hostname when there isn't any dns.

What version are you using?

In 2.5 you can define this via:

Campus Manager Admin>Device Discovery>Discovery Settings>Use Loopback Address.

Although i've not had much luck, even using this. I had to delete the device from the database, then delete the loopback address from the DNS, then add the device again in LMS via the node name.

It is currently using the loopback address for the hostname. I want it to display the hostname on the router as the hostname in ciscoworks. Reading a list of loopback addresses isn't as easy as a list of hostnames.

Does the DNS server your LMS box is using have entries for the loopback addresses?

There is no DNS box for the network. I simply want it to pull the hostname that is written in the router config and use it in place of the loopback address.
