The nas Name Services Tab

Last update June 6, 2016

If you select the Enable Name Services option, the IP-addresses of the sources sending alarms will be resolved to host names according to the rules defined on this screen. The IP-addresses (with corresponding host names) of all sources sending alarms will be listed under the Address Table sub-tab. By right-clicking an entry in the list, you may overrule the hostname with a name of your own choice. You may also add your own entries to the list.


Name Service Properties

Select the Enable Name Services option to map the IP-addresses of the sources sending alarms to host names. Otherwise, the IP-address will be entered as the host name in the alarm messages.

You can also select the name resolution rules:

  • Use RobotName as Hostname (if available)
    Applies to alarms generated on/by a Robot (source IP is the same as the robot’s IP address).
  • Use Default Name-Resolution
    Applies the default name, however you can modify the default name with the following options:
    • Lowercase Hostname After Resolution
      The host name will be converted to lower case.
    • Ignore Unsuccessful Resolution Attempts
      Lookups that failed will not be recorded, but ignored.
  • Revalidate Name every
    Specifies the interval at which the nas attempts to validate host names.

The Name Services Address Table

Right-clicking in the list allows you to add, edit existing, or delete entries from the list. Selecting Refresh (or pressing the F5 button on your keyboard) refreshes the list to display the most current contents.

The Lock option lets you protect the entry from being modified.

The Unlock option removes the lock protection from a locked entry.
