Are you saying that the nodes represented in the Smartset have labels that are IP Addresses? And the node names do actually resolve in DNS? I cannot think how this is possible. If you locate the same node in the IP Topology, does it have a name there, or is it also labeled with an IP Address?
When you display the object information for a node (tools...display Object Info), what is the Selection Name? If you ping the expected DNS name from the commandline, does it resolve, or not? Neview only uses name resolution for labeling.

Please respond to

[nv-l] Smartset discovery

I have created a new smartset in V7.1.3 on Solaris and I want the labels of the resolved objects to display as the actually node names and not the IP addresses, these objects should be DNS resolvable and are for the most part Servers of mixed OS (Solaris/Windows 2K/Linux etc)
