Collector hostname?

Where can I control the Collector hostname?

So we have multiple collectors with service NICs, and every once in a while the collector tries to use the service NIC as the basis of the hostname.

You can force collector to use particular NIC by providing IP. Maybe this will solve your problem:

So you are saying that this will influence the self lookup?


Yes, I've got support ticket for the same. Collector was sometimes using wrong NIC on host when network rule closed main one. This is what dynatrace suggested us. After setting up IP for collector, it was using only the one nic that is corresponding to it.

Ok,

I tried this, but it seems it did not work.


You mean that still you have issue that collector hostname is changing?


That is correct


I suggest opening Support ticket in that case, you may link to this topic to help them understand what steps you have made so far.
