The SevOne-fix-hosts-file script currently uses SSH to get the hostname of each server in the cluster. In a large cluster, this script can take 2-3 hours to complete. Changing from a repetitive SSH to a DNS lookup cuts down the time considerably.
For example to have the serial number or software version of devices in SevOne. It would be good if this was based on device type. Each device type would then have its own snmp OID. The serial number would be requested during the discovery.
