I am trying to setup a basic IPAM discovery but am not using the infoblox for internal DNS or DHCP.  The problem I am running into is that I have not been able to get hostnames to show up in the IPAM discovery. I have tried all the discovery methonds (ICMP, NETBIOS, TCP, Full).  How can I get this box to giv eme the host names in IPAM?

Can you provide more detail on how you set up the IPAM networks, the discovery process, and what members were doing the discovery ?

Hi, scubaguy3



Hostnames are not returned by any kind of discovery method. 


The information supported by method is displayed below:


ICMP method returns IP and MAC address

NetBIOS returns IP, MAC address, OS Type and NetBIOS name

TCP: IP, MAC address and OS Type

Full: a combination of the three methods below, returning IP, MAC address, OS Type and NetBIOS name.

I think you can do what you want with Network Insight.

may be a stupid question, but do you have a DNS resolver configured?
