invalid hostname error

Postby orionsbelt » Mon Nov 06, 2006 5:00 pm

After installing EventReporter 6.2 I get the following error in EventViewer
EventID: 114
Description: Error sending message: Invalid Hostname

Is this the destination hostname? I have checked this and it is the same as all the others.
I checked all configurations and licenses and they seem correct.

If this is the source hostname, what needs to be changed?

how does your configuration look like?
Are you using the Forward Syslog Action?

If yes check the destination Syslog Server, the DNS Name can proberly not be resolved correctly. You can confirm this locally if you try to ping the destination syslog server.
