Change location of local hosts file


Is it possible to have HP SIM read a local hosts file other than the one contained in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc? I edited the system registry to change the location of the hosts file, but HP SIM still looks for it in the standard location. Does HP SIM internally use the mxgethostname during discovery? Is it possible to modify this script or use a properties file to force the lookup to an alternate file?
