Discovering Alias Host in UCMDB

Respected Contributor.

Discovering Alias Host in UCMDB

Hi All,


I have UCMDB V8.07 and trying to discover some servers.The issue is that the solaris server is configured in such a way that it has two IP's and has one hostname and alias. We want that UCMDB should discover this alias name as well, but on UCMDB discovery the secondary IP attaches itself to primary hostname instead of the Alias.

Is there any way to discover these? We need OMI to show alerts on this Alias as well and hence discovering it is important in UCMDB.


-Thanks in Advance.
