Re: IP address as a name

Hi,

Yes, a simple hostfile on the SIM server would do the trick.

Other option is to fix DNS (foward and reverse entries).

Last solution is to change the display name yourselve: In nodes System Page within HP SIM select tab Tools & Links, Edit System Properties en change Preferred System Name.

Cheers,

Perry.
