HI all,

What is the PA requirement to resolve the host name?

I had set main DNS server but when i checked the resolve hostnamt on traffic log i still not able to resolve the pc name?

I have seen issues where in restarting the management server has fixed it.

command is

> debug software restart management-server

Thanks Sraghunandan,

i tried the suggestion but fail. the weird thing is i use laptop to connect to user network environment. i using nslookup for verify the hostname i also not able resolve.

Is the reverse pointer configured in your dns server?

For static devices also object address entries could be useful in ACC and traffic logs. Useless in export pdf

A valid DNS configuration.

The definition of "valid" from the PAN device's point of view is forward *and* reverse zone lookups are enabled and accurate.

You can't expect the firewall to resolve if the hostname isn't in the DNS correctly.
