External node using Dynamic IP does not display the correct IP address in the Orion Web Console

Updated December 20, 2018

Overview

When an external monitored node configured with Dynamic IP changes its IP address, the new IP address does not display in the Orion Web Console.

Environment

  • All NPM versions

Cause

NPM does not support external nodes with dynamic IP addresses.

Detail

Submit a feature request to include this feature in a future release. 

External nodes should be hostname-based, as a rule as they are unlikely to be controlled by the administrators.
