How to display hostname of the media server instead of FQDN

Hi Experts,

I like to standardize all my 8 media servers to be display as hostname which i already register in the host file. From the NetBackup console only one of the media server display as FQDN.

Example:

ABC123

DEF456 - > display "def456.domain.my"

GHI789

How to change this media server name to display as hostname.

Note: I register both hostname and FQDN in hosts file entries.

Example:

10.10.0.1         ABC123          abc123.domain.my

10.10.0.2         DEF456          abc123.domain.my

10.10.0.3         GHI789           abc123.domain.my

I have tried to reinstall by modify and re-edit the hostname but unfortunately still same.

On the media server edit the registry for client name and browser located at:

HKLM\Software\Veritas\NetBackup\CurrentVersion\Config\

Also edit the C:\Program Files\Veritas\Volmgr\vm.conf file to use the shortname

That should do it - if not get back to me as you may need to do an edit in EMM
