Default Different hostname displayed for Discovery window and Workspace

**Problem:

A hostname like A.B.C.netbraintech.com shows up in the Live Network Discovery window as A. The map display shows it correctly though.

**Solution:

NB will trim all strings after a dot in the SNMP hostname by default. But the SNMP hostname will be overwritten by the CLI hostname if NB retrieves a CLI config file. You can modify the Live Access options to change the logic if you need. From the upper-left corner, click the NB logo, choose Options, and switch to the Live Access tab.

Option 1: Trim all stings after the dot in the SNMP hostname.
Option 2: Trim trailing domain names from the SNMP hostname.

For instance, the domain name of the device is netbraintech.com, so the CLI hostname name has the form A.B.C. By default, Option 1 is checked, so the hostname in the Live Network Discovery window will be A, and the hostname in your workspace will be A.B.C (since it is overwritten by the CLI hostname) . If you choose option 2, the hostname in the Live Network Discovery window will be A.B.C, and the hostname in your workspace will be A.B.C.
If you choose option 2 and leave the textbox empty, the hostname both in the Live Network Discovery window and workspace will be A.B.C.netbraintech.com. (The hostname in OEv4.1M2 will be A.B.C)

**Applicable to:

CE and OE before OEv4.1M2

Note: OEv4.1M2 will always treat the CLI hostname as the first candidate.
