Q: My GDMA client cannot reliably determine its own hostname to send to the server, because DNS is not working at the client.
A: Many failures of this type can be corrected by the server during the auto-registration process. Logic in the AutoRegistration.pm module looks at the IP address sent by the client as well, and tries to determine a correct match between the IP address and the hostname before settling on a final hostname to add to Monarch and to publish back to the client machine. See also the <hardcoded_hostnames> option in the config/register_agent.properties file, for handling particularly pernicious problems.
