Enable DNS resolution for wireless nodes

UDT uses the Orion Platform wireless component to manage wireless devices. By default, the wireless component does not resolve a wireless node's IP address into a hostname. To enable it to do so, adjust the SolarWinds.Wireless.Collector.dll.config file as follows:

  1. Open SolarWinds.Wireless.Collector.dll.config. By default this is located in the C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\Wireless directory.
  2. Change the value of:

      <add key="RDNSTimeout" value="0" />


      <add key="RDNSTimeout" value="1" />

  3. Save the change and restart the Orion Web Console.
