Post subject:  DNS on Network Details

Our DNS server doesn't sync with our hosts, so sometimes I have to call our network sys admin to look up a DNS record
How can I list the net_dns_host_name + net_dns_domain under Network Details with each network IP address row? Sort of FQDN

I'd like to help but I'm just not getting what you want to do. Maybe restate for those of us with small craniums?

Here's what I'm looking for. The reason is when I work with scripts that ping the hostname and I get no reply. Reason is because the DNS server does funky things and appends numbers to the A records. Particularly with laptops that have more than one NIC card, so I have more than one DNS record per device and I never know which one is which. I can see the DNS is on the OA db, and I'd like to add that info to the UI

That is much easier to understand. Quick stab attached. Should do what you want. I had to zip to get the file uploaded as it wouldn't take just renaming with ".txt".

I'm reading my original post again and I realized how badly I wrote that. I'm definitively more of a visual person and you nailed my idea. Thanks, JP

One thing, I did notice that you had some extra changes to the file, there's one particular line on 613 referencing system_audits_ip which I don't have in my DB so it's causing me an error on the System Audits section. Am I missing something or is this your own separate work? I'm going to comment it out but just wanted to point it out just in case.

system_audits_ip is in the next version - JPA is special :-)
It will record where the audit submission (IP Address) came from.
Just comment it out for now.

Oh man, sorry about that el_geto and Mark. Should have been paying a bit more attention.
