snmptd (source of alarm).

Discussion created by anthony.valuikas on Jan 11, 2011

Using SNMPTD, I was wondering if there is a way to get the "source" field in the alarm to read the IP instead of the FQDN? I have the probe set to "enable name resolution" which is needed for the "hostname" but it is also changing the "source" which I do not need. I need that to reflect the IP.

What is happening is that the remedygtw probe, even though it uses the "hostname" field it is passing the "source" which in my case will not work when I try to open tickets. In the past with the vmware probe I removed a <dns> entry in the cfg file and that worked but, this probe does not reflect that entry.
