Nagios Hosts definition with vCloud Director

Hello,

We use Nagios to monitor devices on our network. We have recently deployed vLoud Director into our company to automate the deployment of VMs.

Now when a VM is created it gives it a name in vCenter like this hostname {guid-guid-guid-duid}

Is there a way to define the host in Nagios where I only need to enter the hostname rather than the full long name.

Im thinking there maybe an option where I define Host, hostname LIKE servername

Any help much appreciated

Are you talking about the host definitions, or host checks? In the definition it does not matter, you simply give the host any name you choose. In the host check. If you are checking by FQDN and not IP address, then the DNS server is where you will need to make the change.
