Spirent TestCenter: How to connect to a chassis using hostname instead of IP address?

Environment/Versions
  • All STC versions
  • All STC chassis
  • Chassis hostname
Answer
  • All you need to do is:
  1. Get your chassis name - connect to your chassis as admin, and issue the command hostname
admin> hostname
spirent-chassis-1
admin>

 
  1. Add the corresponding entry in your DNS and make sure the name is getting resolved (It will take a minutes for the maps to propagate)
    • Go to cmd and issue: nslookup spirent-chassis-1, you should get the IP address of the chassis you configured.
  1. At this point you should be able to connect to your chassis by hostname spirent-chassis-1.yourdomain.com (in this case)
