You can add /AgentSetup/integration/publishHostName/ this variable in patrol config and put the hostname for the patrol agent.
Could you please provide the configuration variable with value. So that i can push this variable toball agents using create single policy.
Additionally what do I need to do to have device name in lower case only?

You can refer the Integration variables - BMC PATROL Agent 10.7 - BMC Documentation link to add the /AgentSetup/integration/publishHostName/ variable.
You need to add this variable explicitly in every patrol agent config with respective the hostname of that patrol agent host. You can provide your hostname in lowercase.

i don't think this is a solution for the described use case: suppose you are monitoring 100 or more patrolagents, you wouldn't be able to set that variable with the desired PA name for each of them one by one. Even if you went through the pain of doing it, you would end up with a static list of hardcoded hostnames and couldn not mantain it.
That variable should be set with a dynamic value calculated from hostname, stripped of domain (if any) and set to lowercase which, to my knowledge, can't be done in variable setting section in CMA policies nor in CFG mgr nor wpconfig.
You would need something outside the PA thar runs on all servers, detect and elaborates the desired hostname and set the variable. Even in this case you would end up with duplicated devices on BPPM/TSIM.
Thanks Anant, It’s operationally not feasible to set this variable manually for each system.
Thanks and Regards,
