Alarm is creating for other server instead of real server cluster server

Some alarms show an incorrect hostname.  The robot name may be correct. However, the hostname is wrong.


- UIM 8.51
- nas probe version 9.0
- Windows or Linux


The nas probe will try to use DNS, WINS, naming services to match the IP address listed in an alarm with a hostname.

If DNS or WINS is not configured correctly, there may be cases where alarms will show an incorrect hostname.


In your "nas" configuration, under "Name Services" > "Properties" 
you have "Use Default Name-Resolution. DNS, WINS, etc..". 
You can deselect this, and leave "use NMS RobotName as Hostname (if available)" if you prefer to see the robot name in the alarm. 

<Please see attached file for image>

Disable DNS WINS nas probe
So, the alarm will use the Robot Name for the Hostname on the alarm.
