Cisco 2911 Router - Assign Names to IP Addresses

Hi guys ....

We have recently upgraded to a Cisco 2911 router.
I can no longer connect to this using the ASDM software and have to use Cisco Configuration Professional for a GUI.

On previous routers i could easily assign a name to an IP address, so when checking groups or rules i could easily see what was doing what - by creating a network object.

Now i only seem to have the option to add groups rather than individual IPs.

For example i would like to add our BlackBerry Server with IP 10.1.1.100, and give it the name BLACKBERRY_SERV so i can easily identify it within groups/rules.

I'm currently using CCP 2.4 (soon to upgrade to 2.5)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I don't know CCP, but if you go to the command line, you can use:

config term
ip host BLACKBERRY_SERV 10.1.1.100
end

Hi donjohnston ...

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I'm not a command line person, and like to avoid it at all cost (in case i screw anything up), so will need to do this through the gui.

Can anybody familiar with CCP help?

Thanks

I can't find any way to set the ip host parameters using the GUI. However you can manually enter commands. It should work like this:

Click on "Applications"
Select "Configuration Editor"
Click on "I Agree"
In the "Edit Configuration" box enter "ip host BLACKBERRY_SERV 10.1.1.100"
Then click "Merge with running config".

I have given that a try, but i get the following message in the 'Console Output' tab  :

"Failed to apply configuration.  The configuration may contain one or more interactive configuration commands that are not supported in CiscoCP. locale problem - Utilities"

Sorry.

That's strange. You don't get a simpler command then that.

It's possible that there are some things you simply can't do in CCP.

Maybe someone that has CCP will know.
