$MSG_NODE_NAME should not retrieve FQDN of host?

Hello Support,


I have a Automatic action configured on OMW server to run against the node.  i am retriving the node name using variable $MSG_NODE_NAME and i noticed that for LINUX node name shown is short name where as it is important that it should be FQDN.


a application is using opcmsg at the LINUX end. i have a policy deployed on LINUX node to intercept such messages and then run an auto action on <$OPC_MGMTSV>


and in the command somewhere i need to pass the node name(FQDN) and i am using <$MSG_NODE_NAME>. command will fail if it does not see the FQDN and that is what happening.


from the message i can see that primarynodename is FQDN only. also i can lookup the node with its FQDN.


Can someone assist me with this?

Hi Kaka


Are you using OA11.14?

What is the contents of your /etc/hosts?


You can set OPC_IP_ADDRESS under [eaagt] name space such that it resolves to FQDN of your agent machine


Let me know if you have any more queries


Else please share the trace file along with /etc/hosts , oa data collector when issue is observed


I will analyze and get back to you

Re: $MSG_NODE_NAME should not retrieve FQDN of host?

any idea how opcmsg is called?

if it is called with with opcmsg command's " node=<name> " option and the short name of the host is specified there, it comes up that way? just guessing, as Sandeep suggests, please share the other details.
