I am convinced that there is a way to configure the robot/controller to use the FQDN of the host as the robot name (without manually specifying the robot name, of course). I think I read something about how to enable this option in the robot.cfg file recently, but I could not find anything on the forums about it cannot think of anywhere else I would have seen information like that. Does anyone know how this can be done?
I really hope this is a capability of the robot and not just something I dreamed up...
mine does this by default in the UMP portlets. in the alarms they are short. There is a Name Translation Table in the NAS to manually do it. As far as the Robot name its different in almost every place I see, UMP is long, alarm console is short etc.
I am pretty sure by default the robot strips the FQDN at the first period. I don't think there is an option to use the FQDN by default.
I think it is a feature on the backlog, but not yet implemented.
No, that only affects alarms. We want robot names to be unique, and relying on the hostname without the domain is not going to suffice. I really thought this was an option in the robot, but I guess we will just have to set the robot names manually.
