Issue/Introduction

We need to have the Spectrum model name be the fully qualified domain name - FQDN.  Currently when the UIM integration is enabled and the models are created they are being created with the non FQDN name.  How does Spectrum populate the host name from the UIM integration?

Environment

Release : 10.4

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

Spectrum queries the UIM inventory and uses the csname entry.

<IPElement origin="ML487" csId="729" status="ACTIVE" csName="nh5454" csIp="192.168.145.22">

 

If the entry is not fully qualified and you need it to be, you can set robotname=fqdn in the robot.cfg which populates the FQDN csName attribute in the api

<IPElement origin="ML487" csId="729" status="ACTIVE" csName="nh5454.broadcom.net" csIp="192.168.145.22">
