We have added a lot of profiles in the rsp probe.
The hostnames that get discovered are by default with their FQDN's. However, I wish to rename them to just their short names. I am able to make the change (a basic editing of the name and then save the confign), however the alarm still shows me the FQDN in the hostname. Anything I am missing over here?
RSP discovery does device name lookup by default.
You are able to disable it by turning on [Bypass name lookup] option.
The option is available in [Add Host(s)] GUI.
The option is off by default.
For hostname (in alarm), NAS probe also does device name lookup by default.
You are able to disable it by turning off [Use Default Name-Resolution. DNS, WINS etc.] option.
The option is on by default.
The option is [Name Services] > [Properties] in NAS probe GUI.
Tested that as well but alarm still seems to be coming from FQDN as hostname.
I had both short and full name profiles active at a time, and created separate credentials(named that in short form as well) for the new short name profile.
Bit it did not seem to work.
Have you tried clearing the niscache of the robot where the rsp probe is installed after the changes done
Sorry for late.
Please go [Name Services] > [Address Table] in NAS probe GUI.
This is the name resolution entry NAS uses.
Please delete existing name resolution entry.
I am trying that but it looks like the change is not reflecting on the nas.
Post deletion of the entry, it comes back again.
