DNS names not showing on ProCurve Manager Plus

Can anyone tell me what must be set in order to have a correct dns name.

whenever i receive an alert, dns name would be replaced by its ip address not the dns.. see below.

event received from: 128.1.4.55
dns: 128.1.4.55 <-----------------error

additional comments...

it resolved the system name appearance. However, the dns still use ip address...

after including %S--%D in the custom format string, the result is:


lan switch 1--128.1.4.55

Re: DNS names not showing on ProCurve Manager Plus

Does the device occur in DNS at all?
(A-record)

The switch won't register itself in DNS, so you must have done that manually.

if so, check there is a reverse-lookup zone configured and a reverse-lookup entry (PTR-record) for this device.

For switch DNS, it isnt register for the switch as I reverified (only the system name present)..


how can i get access with A-record and PTR-record?
