      I would like to know, why there was the following statement about hostnames included in Orion's v9 release notes?

      "

      Special Characters in Machine Names

      Due to limitations based on RFC 952 - DOD Internet Host Table Specification that are maintained by Windows Internet Information Services (IIS), the machine names of monitored network devices may only be composed of the following:

      • Alphabetic characters (a-z or A-Z, case-insensitive)
      • Digits (0-9)
      • Minus sign (-)
      • Period (.)

      "

      Were there any performance issues or something else?

      For historical reasons we have hostnames with underscores and they are bundled in VPN certificates, so it is pain to rename.
