I hate to tell you how many poorly administered sysNames I have seen,
Catalina, so I for one am glad that Netview will not do this. I know that
Openview will, and I think it is a bad idea.
Others have suggested pulling the sysnames with a script and using
that to update your DNS or your hosts file, and that is the approach I
always take. I also use this to verify that the sysName makes sense
when compared to the names are are in the DNS.
For a good discussion of Cisco's approach to this, see this whitepaper:

Please respond to IBM
Is it possible to get netview to pull the sysName and use it as the
Selection Name on cisco devices and servers(AIX, NT, 2000)?
CiscoWorks can do this and I have been asked to get Netview to do the same.
(from my previous emails, we are trying to get away from the host file)
