  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • If the Operating System API (getCanonicalHostname) is not
    able to retrieve a fully hostname because the local
    network configuration is not enough, then TPM will try to get
    this info directly invoking nslookup from the target machine
    using the current RXA session.
    

Local fix

  • This is working as designed.
    
    1. There is no requirement in TPM to have computer name =
    Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).
    2. Since the DNS server set for the endpoints is not the DNS
    server set for TPM, TPM cannot see those FQDNs, so it is correct
    to not store them as computer names in DCM.
    
    The TPM Network discovery does not necessarily use the fully
    qualified hostname because of its network configuration. The
    value returned will be the output of the hostname command at the
    target.
    

Problem summary

  • This documentation update will be included in the 7.1.1 release
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
