    HP Web JetAdmin - Setting Hostnames

    We've just installed HP Web JetAdmin and the other day i spent a good portion of time going through a good portion of the printers in the school changing their Host/Systemname from the default to a meaningful printer name, which tied into the room they were in.

    When changing them, i went through the process and really only 1 or 2 actually changed to what i set them as in the devices list. I figured it might take a bit of time to resolve and update because when you clicked on them it said they were set to what i wanted but just still showing the old name in the device list.

    I've come to check today and only 1 is set to what i changed them to and all have now changed back to the defaults in the device list and as well in the network config screen.

    Has anyone come across a problem like this as i dont want to waste more time naming them to find it doesnt work again?

    You need to set reverse DNS up for your subnet to show your own names.
