we're experiencing problem while adding new cameras using hostnames. In the VSOM only valid IP Addresses are usable.
Table 8-3 Network Camera General Settings
Enter the hostname or IP address entered in the camera configuration.
See the camera documentation for instructions.
Note All edge devices (such as cameras and encoders) must added to a server using a local (non-NAT) addresses.
Since we're trying to solve some identities collision using hostnames and not IP Addresses it is tough..
We have a lot of cameras in different points with same addresses (we only need a Central VSOM and a different MS for each point) so we're trying to use DNS as a solution.
Can you help us ?
