Device Name dislpay in PCM

How do you change a switch 'Device Name' as opposed to its 'System Name' so it displays inside PCM.

The default display is the IP address and I wish to use logical names for my switches.

If you register them in the DNS used by the PCM server and rediscover them (this is just to speed up the process if I remember rightly) you will see the device name as you want it to.
