Use FQDNs for contacting assets

Control Compliance Suite


Customers would like to have Control Compliance Suite information, specifically when CCS supposedly uses FQDNs to contact (agent-less) Windows assets only when a domain cache is available. If domain cache building is disabled, CCS only uses NetBIOS names, despite the FQDN being visible and available in the asset properties. If the name resolution on NetBIOS names fails, CCS is unable to reach the assets.

Using the available FQDN to contact assets even when domain caching is disabled - FQDNs are more reliable than short hostnames and won't cause an issue if the short hostname is duplicated in multiple domains.
