Clients Identity

When I list clients

Windows 10 systems come up as the HOST NAME

MACbook Pros. 

44aec9d1-a7f6-4756-ac97-2dd741e84b2e 

or

MBPUSERNAME 

 

What is Meraki looking for to resolve or relate the name to the host?

It's due to MDNS https://documentation.meraki.com/General_Administration/Cross-Platform_Content/Rename_a_Client's_Hos.... Unfortunately anything that sends MDNS (mostly Macs, but other OS'es can too) the name will show up as the long MDNS string.

Kind of a big deal

Thinking about this sideways, can you configure the name that MDNS sends from the client side?

Is this a MACOS change that all of a sudden the identity of the MACBOOK Pro is unusable?

 

Does the Jump to MX16.15 possibly catch up with  MACOS upgrade or Windows 11?
