Re: LMS 3.2 some devices appear by IP not hostname

The device which are already in LMS DCR would stay as it is, if they are added by IP already.

If you are sure all the devices are in hosts file, than you should modify your scheduled discovery job for Update DCR Display Name check box.

Select this checkbox if you want to update the display name of the devices that already exist in DCR, in the next Device Discovery cycle.

For example, consider a device which is discovered by Common Services Device Discovery, exists in DCR with the display name as its hostname.

If you change the Preferred DCR Display Name as IP Address for the next Device Discovery, Common Services Device Discovery will update the display name of the device as its IP Address in DCR after the next Device Discovery.

The display name of devices are not overwritten in the future Device Discovery cycles if you have not selected this option.
