have experienced this kind of problem here. IBM has asked us to put all
monitored nodes in the DNS. And mainly, keep all interfaces been resolved. You
must put the loopback address at the direct resolution file and all
interfaces on the reverse resolution file.
all of this is intended to be made to routers. Simple nodes (with only a
interface) have to be deleted and re-discovered.
have only routers, Netview will be able to resolv this
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.

[nv-l] DNS Resolution
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
