thanks for reply.
Our TEC-Administrator has a rule like:
/* find the first '.' in the hostname */
/* we want all up to the dot, but not the dot itself */
_cut is _pos - 1,
/* get the prefix */
/* set the slot hostname */
/* re_mark_as_modified is not needed in reception actions
But unfortunately this is not useful if the hostname is a IP-Adress.
Maybe you know how to complete the rule?
