You can define local exceptions to seed-name name resolution by adding the keywords and values that are identified in the right column of GUID-A4024AAC-CAA2-4B3E-8163-644952CCF0FD.html#GUID-A4024AAC-CAA2-4B3E-8163-644952CCF0FD___NAME_RESOLUTION_92417 to specific systems in the seed file.Chapter 2 in VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Concepts Guide describes the format of a seed file.
To configure exceptions for seed-name name resolution:
Configure seed-name name resolution as described in “Configuring seed-name name resolution” on page 155.
Revise your seed file and, for each exception entry in the seed file, add a keyword and value as follows:
NAMEFORMAT=<naming source> 192.168.6.5 NAMEFORMAT=TM_USEAUTONAME 192.168.12.2 NAMEFORMAT=TM_USELOOPBACK 192.168.2.2 NAMEFORMAT=TM_USEPRIVATEIP
Import the seed file for discovery.
The locally specified naming sources will be used to name the systems.
If the resolution process is unsuccessful for the specified naming source for a system, a final procedure will use a public IP address, a private IP address, or the SNMP agent address for the system name.
