Systems Deployment Question
wsname reverse lookup in windows 10
we encountered a new behaviour of wsname.exe 2.9.6 from David Clarke. We deploy Windows 10 1803 in Developermode with Software like Visual Studio and Unity on it to develop for Hololenses. So Hyper-V must be enabled.
wsname now tries to reverselookup the IP it got from the vEthernet (Default) Switch and not form the Network Card Ethernet and hence won't get the correct Hostname as seen in it's Logfile:
wsname.exe /N:$DNS:<IP-YOUR-DNS-SERVER> /LOGFILE:C:\temp\wsname-log.txt
We tried with disabling Hyper-v before wsname in a powershell script (Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V-All) to enable it again afterwards but that didn't help.
In the end I had to disable the vEthernetscript manually as he the wsname-task stopped with an error, than retry the task and everything went fine. I'm still searching for a solution to get wsname pick the right interface.
