Change hostname of the beacon to add FQDN
I have an error in inventoring a windows target.
Scenario is having a beacon on a different domain of the target.
So the target execute the following command
\\MON-P-FX-AS-V01\mgsRET$\Inventory\ndtrack.exe -t Machine -o UploadLocation="http://172.30.113.173/ManageSoftRL" -o LogModules="default" -o IgnoreConnectionWindows="true" -o ShowIcon="false" -o PolicyRevisionNumber="543" -o RuleID="23" -o SessionUID="f7428ee6-40a5-4020-bcd1-cf10d6147cf4" -o IncludeDirectory="" -o CALInventory="False"
that gives a network error.
I need to change the first part \\MON-P-FX-AS-V01 in \\MON-P-FX-AS-V01.domain.com
where I can do this?
I already changed the network name in the beacon engine configuration in dotnet/conf, but this change affected only the second part of the command (where you see the IP)
Thanks for your help!

You will want to update the following registry key:
I hope this helps.
Try changing the name used to reference the beacon in the PublicToolsShare and ActionShare registry values under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\RemoteExecution\CurrentVersion.
(Although I am a little unsure here - your original post showed output from a beacon named MON-P-FX-AS-V01, while the registry settings appear to be from a beacon named PSAMAS02C. Have you changed which beacon you are looking at?)
Hi Chris, thanks for reply, the difference in the name is because I have the error in production but I'm doing my test for this in a testing environment.
I will check for actionshare registry key in the documentation to understand what it is
you could also change the name of the beacon within the beacon.config located C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\Inventory Beacon\DotNet\conf\BeaconEngine.config by default
you can add the networkname = FQDN
as another method.
