NNM 9.00 spi(performance for metrics) report is not showing the device host name.

Hi Expert,

 

AS I am using NNM 9.00 +perf Metrics.

Now the report that is generating from the spi shows only the IP address of the devices,

How  to find host name of the devices in the report with IP.

In the map view of NNM the devices are showing their host name but instead of that it

is not showing in the reports of perf metrics.

 

Please reply................

 

Thanks&Regards

I've seen this quite a bit.  If you read the NNMi requirements document prerequisites it covers "Well-Configured DNSUnder discovery you've got this section with combo boxes to determine how your nodes are displayed in the GUI:

 

Node Name Resolution

First Choice   Second Choice   Third Choice  

 

This doesnt apply to the Perf SPI. It strictly uses resolved names, so unless your device management IP addresses are in DNS, you'll need to create a hosts file on your NNMi server .

Have a nice day :)
