How to auto-update ip address of an OSSV host with dhcp

I've seen there is an options to auto-update the hostPrimaryAddress of an OSSV host.

I suppose this is the solution for ip dynamically changed by dhcp .. (this is my situation).

Action to take when the primary IP address of an OSSV in DataFabric Managerâs database is different from the IP address given by theDNS. The options are off, warn, error, update

           If the option is off, check for IP address mis-match.  If the option is warn, check for IP address mis-match and give a warning if the address do not match.  If
           the option is error, give an error if the IP address do not match. If the option is update, update the hostPrimaryAddress if it is different from the IP address
           that we get from the DNS.

look this:

I've modified the variable:

C:\Users\admin.mc>dfm options list |findstr processOSSVPrimaryAddress

processOSSVPrimaryAddress warn

C:\Users\admin.mc>dfm options set processOSSVPrimaryAddress=update

Changed action to take if the primary address of an OSSV is different from the c

urrent IP address retrieved from DNS to update.

C:\Users\admin.mc>

C:\Users\admin.mc>dfm options list |findstr processOSSVPrimaryAddress

processOSSVPrimaryAddress update

I can not understand why it does not work....


C:\Users\admin.mc>dfm host diag crivellari
