    PRODUCT:

    BMC Discovery


    COMPONENT:

    BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping


    APPLIES TO:

    Discovery 11.0, 11.1, 11.2, and maybe earlier releases



    PROBLEM:

     

    ADDM isn't creating a FQDN attribute for hosts managed by vCenter
     

     


    SOLUTION:

     

    This is not a directly discoverable attribute on ESX/vCenter. However, FQDN is constructed from DNS Domain and hostname in ADDM 10+.
    Please also see ADDM: How Host.local_fqdn is set? 

    How is dns_domain attribute discovered? 
    The vsphere/api uses this attribute:    'config.network.dnsConfig.domainName'
