Source name lookup not working in Infrastructure Manager.

    When I look at the alarm list in Infrastructure Manager, a few sources lists with their name, and others lists with IP adress. The hostname i listed with name. Is there any way to make the source also list names and not IP?

    Regards

    Alarms are sent with the IP address as the source.  The nas (>= 3.x) does a name lookup on the source to apply a name.  You can add an IP address to name lookup in he Name Services window.

    I have found that the value in the source field of an alarm varies depending on the probe.  For example, the interface_traffic probe can actually be configured to use the profile name, description, or IP address as the alarm source.  If your NAS can resolve those IP addresses back to names, the hostname field in the alarms should be just what you need.  However, if the NAS cannot resolve the IP addresses, sometimes the hostname field will also just contain the IP address.
