    Hi All,

    Is there a way to retrieve Agent's Host IP address ? We are getting Agents hostname but not IP.

    Intead of doing any changes to the IntroscopeAgent.profile or passing JVM parameters, is it possible ?

    Hi Vaibhav,

    You can do some thing like extract the hostnames and do a nslookup, if its a requirement to use the values outside introscope.

    However the aget profile has a configuration to display only the fqdn or short hostname, no opton within the profile to display the IP instead of hostname.

    I'm assuming you're missing the IP Address information under "Host" node of your agent?

    Hi Hiko,

    Initially I was expecting this reply from users, but I think they got me..
    Actually what I am trying to achieve is, I want agent's IP address to be passed to the 'action' integrated with alert.

    To elaborate, I want to run a shell script which would be requiring agent's IP address. I am trying to work with 'nslookup' command.

    So this is the whole case.

    Hi All,

    Any updates ?

    I want hosts\agents IP address to be passed to a shell script located at EM . ( Apart from the "nslookup" command )

    Please help.

    Hi Vaibhav,

    In the shell script you can use the below to take the ip address from the hostname.

    nslookup <hostname / variable containing hostname> | grep 'Address:' | sed -n '2p' | awk '{print $2}'

    I guess there is no other way to get the host ip address, in the metric name, when the host is populated with a host address.
