Why does DFM list the short name for some filers and vfilers, but for others it lists the fully qualified name ?
I'm talking about the output from commands like 'dfm host list' and 'dfm vfiler list'.

Even I have the same question.
Sometimes it uses the FQDN and sometimes the short name.
This is especially confusing in the case of SnapVault or SnapMirror relationships as to which name dfm uses to connect between the source and destination filer.

DFM display the FQDN name for a filer or a vfiler, if DNS is configured for the same.
Otherwise it will display only the short name or the name with the vfiler is created.
create a vfiler without enalbing DNS. The command "dfm host list" shows only the short name
Create an another vfiler with enabling DNS during the setup, "dfm host list" shows the FQDN name added.

I'm not sure I understand your answer.
I have a filer with dns enabled but 'dfm host list <that_filer>' shows just the short name.
Here's the output of 'options dns' run on the filer
dns.cache.enable on (value might be overwritten in takeover)
dns.domainname (value might be overwritten in takeover)
dns.enable on (value might be overwritten in takeover)
dns.update.enable off (value might be overwritten in takeover)
dns.update.ttl 24h (value might be overwritten in takeover)
Its partner has the same settings. DFM shows its short name, too, rather than full name

If dns is configured, you should get the domain name in "dns.domainname".

Could you please run the dns setup again?
