We are implementing loopback addresses on our routers and some techs want to use a unique name for the loopback interface. The reason for this is that when telneting into a router that has an interface down, our DNS is using round robin and sometimes grabs the down interface and of course times out. So their thought is to use a unique name for their telnet and if the router is reachable at all they should get connected.
In my experience with a large variety of management tools, I have seen some that would interpret a unique name and IP address as a unique device. Does anyone have any thoughts on this especially related to Ciscoworks and HPOV NNM/ITO. I am looking for reasons we may not want to do this but will listen to all comments.
Does anyone know of a best practices white paper regarding device names?
