Thread-topic: [nv-l] hostname changed

Yes, you can do it by SNMP.
Just verify that the SNMP agent on the device you want to change the hostname 
is configured correctly to allow Netview to change the Hostname (sysName).

The SNMP variable that holds the hostname is mib-2.system.sysName.0 .
The SNMP Agent must have configured a RW community (and allow the Netview IP to 
access the agent).
Netview must use this community name to issue a set request on the MIB variable 
of the device.

Can Netview change a device's hostname on its own ? I don't mean in the
Netview database or on the map but on the device itself.
Network administrators believe Netview changes hostname in running config of
some Cisco devices. I am rather doubtful.
