How to Change multiple Node Hostname

Hi everyone, 

I already added the device as ICMP via Network Sonar Wizard. Unfortunately, the hostname is the same with the IP Address. How can I change multiple device hostnames?

  • With ICMP only, we are limited in discovering what the name of the device is, unlike SNMP/WMI/Agent, where we can ask each node for there hostname/system name. ICMP by default will attempt to use reverse DNS to populate a name, if it does not have a DNS entry, then the IP Address will be used.

    So the options are (no particular order):
    1) Leverage a spreadsheet with the names and use the API as outlined by  

    2) Create a reverse DNS entry for each node.

    3) Manually update each node in SolarWinds with a name.
