HPNA overrides host name

Hi all,

I have a issue with my NA 10.20.

I added some devices with an import, all the devices are referenced in th /etc/hosts file and when I launch the Resolve FQDN Task I get the right host name.

But when I run a Take Snapshot task (or an other similar task), the hosts name is often changed even with the adjustable_option.rcx file modified with the "<option name="FastLookup/Hostname"></option>" line.

Does someone understand where does this behaviour might come ?


Thanks in advance.

Under Admin -> Server,

Domain Name Resolution: 

Overwrite Existing Domain Names               [ ] If checked, HPE Network Automation overwrites manual FQDN entries with DNS resolved FQDN entries when you run a Resolve FQDN task. When the task is run,  both the Device Domain Name and the Device Hostname are replaced.

Do you have this checked or unchecked? Toggle the check and run the Resolve FQDN again to see if this fixes your problem.
