Try demand polling one of these nodes. I've done this in the past and at the end of the demand poll output you should see a name check and the label on the map will be updated if different. If this works for your particular nodes, then the Daily Config check should have a similar affect. Will a demandpoll and Daily Config always do this ? I don't know. It may be that the nodes in question have to be SNMP enabled and their community name known to NetView. Also you must have the default ipmap setting allowing ipmap to override map changes.

NetView 6.0.3 AIX 4.3.3

I have several hundred nodes who's names didn't resolve in DNS. I am running
a local caching name server on my NetView box. I now am able to resolve the
hostnames after some DNS work. My question is, do I have to delete and
rediscover these nodes, or will NetView change the name when it figures out
that it can resolve it?
