Hostname character limit change
We are experiencing a small issue in FNMS 2021 R1 On-Prem where FNMS only shows the first 15 characters of a hostname and the last few characters are truncated from the view.
Is there a way of increasing that character limit?
Hi IronMan, thanks for reaching out via the Community.
Are these Windows machines where you're seeing the 15-character name gathered?
If so, I believe the Windows Agent gathers the NetBIOS name - which on a Windows box is limited to 15 characters.
This is discussed in MS' own documentation, here:
"Maximum name length: 15 characters"
Kind regards and thanks,
you can add entry in registry
add new "String value" as ValueName=MachineId and Value Data is full hostname
