Local probes may not be consistent in how they send the QOS SOURCE to the database. This becomes apparent within ListDesigner as you see the host names as short name and long name. This can cause confusion and display issues.


You can override this by setting a controller environmental variable of NIM_QOS_SOURCE



To override the QOS SOURCE

  1. Open up the Controller of the robot in question
  2. Select the Environment tab
  3. Right click the white pane and select "New"
  4. Insert NIM_QOS_SOURCE for the variable name
  5. Insert a value of your choosing to override the source (Usually the shortname or FQDN).
  6. Click Ok
  7. Select ok again.

Following this, you may need to clear out the niscache. For details please see How to Clear niscache on an individual robot
