Pinned topic Using hostname instead of IP

‏2013-07-10T18:40:19Z |

Hi All,

I may have missed something completely obvious, but in my reports I haven't been able to use server hostname as a criterion instead of server IP address.  I have configured an appropriate group containing a list of hostnames, and used this in a couple of test reports to no avail.  When I configure a report to display the hostnames of the servers I'm concerned about, it simply displays their IP addresses (even though the IP field displays the hostname, due to aliasing).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

    Hi, in report or query filtering, you will still require to use IP address and not the hostname.

    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to display the hostname instead of the ip address? If yes, do I need to point the Guardium to a DNS Server?

      You have to use 'Alias Builder' available in Tools to use this functionality.

      If you will like to display hostname instead of the IP address automatically, yes, you can point Guardium to the DNS server but provided the particular DNS server has all the entries. You can used the IP-to-hostname aliasing in Administration Console. You can define the schedule how often Guardium will check at the DNS server.
