How to get DNS Name be the DNS Name rather than computer name

In Patchlink associated with computers there is "DNS Name" field.  This
field seems to be the computer name (netbios name) for windows computers
rather than the dns name assocated with the IP address.  Is there a way to
configure the patchlink server so this field reports the DNS Name rather
than the computer name?

2) From the Computers ->Click on any computer under Computer Information
the    first column you will find DNS Name:

Need e-directory server name and DNS name to be different
Hi: We're setting up an OES2/SLES10 box. We're at the point where we're importing the server into an existing tree. We're installing OES2 as an add-on product at the same time we're installing SLES10. When you give it a DNS name, it wants to use that name as the server name (as it would appear in e-directory)...but we don't want that. We want (for example) the server name to be ls2224-cs and the dns name to be dcs2224. Any suggestions? -- pattercw ------------------------------------------------------------------------ pattercw, fi...

iMan 272 Login works with ip address or DNS Name not with Tree Name
I believe this error message has a long history. I am hoping to get lucky and be graced with a technical explanation (i.e. detail) as to the cause, from someone who knows the reasons why.... The message appears in the error log of our iManager 272 Servers (Hosted on NW6.5 Sp8 eDir 88. NW 6.5 SP8 was installed on eDir 88 so we are at eDir 88SP4).

SQL: Column names, can ONLY get "name" instead of ""
Hey all, When iterating through column names returned from a query, I need to get "" rather than just "name" Check it out: If I have an SQL statement "SELECT table1.ID, table2.ID FROM table1, table2;" And table1 has a column name 'ID' and table2 has a column name 'ID' aswell, and i run the query, the dataset will contain column names 'ID' and 'ID' instead of 'table1.ID' and 'table2.ID' It is extremely important that I can differenciate between the 2 fields, and know where each of them come from. The same thing happen...

dns names
I have an OES netware server (6.5 SP6) on which I have had to change the dns setup to get iPrint working. I changed the dns name on all servers and workstations to the new external domain name and everything seemd ok (not chnaged the NDS server name). Then I changed the hosts and hostname file and a lot of things have stopped workig. I have edited numerous conf files, but at the moment iPrint has stopped completely. This may of course be something to do with the SP6. I have applied the iprint SP6a fix. Is there a complete list of what to change if you need to change the dns ...

Getting the name of the object (the name of the object in the library)
Is there a way to get the name of an object as named in the library? I have a user object named ucb_user_object.. I put it in a window and I named it cb_1 The ClassName() function will return cb_1 but I want the function to return "ucb_user_object". Any of you have an idea ? Have a look at ClassDefinition, and following the ParentClass attribute up the chain. Extend this enough, and you can identify all descendants of ucb_user_object (I'm guessing that may be your objective). PFC implements something like this in (pfcapsrv.pbl)pfc_n_cst_metacl...
