Change Veeam ONE monitored host name or IP

Post by labsy » Nov 07, 2017 12:17 am

Hi,

I am using Veeam ONE to monitor multiple hosts via PUBLIC WAN IP address, each host having port 443 NAT-ed to different public port.
But the problem is that Veeam ONE shows the same public IP for all hosts and I can hardly distinguish between them.

Is there any option, maybe registry hack to RENAME hosts from IP to some more friendly name?

Temporary workaround...but I loose historical data doing so:
- I can add multiple FQDN in my local hosts file, all pointing to the same public IP, for example:
HOST1 1.2.3.4
HOST2 1.2.3.4
HOST3 1.2.3.4
- then I add HOST1 as an entry for Veeam ONE monitoring, and select host1's REDIRECTED PORT
- doing so, I will have Friendly NAmes for my hosts, which is fine, if I do it from begining.

Hi Andrej,
It`s a pretty rare when people use NAT for hosts, in general hosts are added by FQDN or static IP addresses, so we don`t provide such an option.
Your workaround looks nice and I think that`s the easiest way. I can also think of changing host display names in SQL, but that`s more valnurable.
Thanks!
