Issue:

SystemEDGE Hosts with an "_" in the hostname (Server_1) do not register with VAIM.

Resolution:

The underscore in the naming convention of the hostname (Server_1) is causing VAIM to discard the name. That is because "_" is out of the RFC Spec for DNS Naming.

So at this time the only options are as follows:


1. Rename server hostname to remove the "_".
2. Put the agent in unmanaged mode and manually configure the sysedge.cf file located under the PORT# folder for these hosts.
