Hello,

running an auto-discovery on my printers always finish by giving the SNMP name to the object, even if a DNS name is registered.

In the documentation about auto-discovery (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg8/auto_discovery.htm) we see that the recommended method for name resolution is "Use DNS / WMI / SNMP names"... but what's the priority if several answer are available ?

Thanks for your help

There is no priority. The last fond name sticks.
