does Snapdrive have a critical dependency on reverse lookup of IP addresses to successfully mount a LUN?
IHAC that is asking this and doesn't understand why Snapdrive would need to resolve IP --> names at all. Why can't it just use IP addresses?
It’s annoying, because it means we have to either a) add an entry into every Windows HOSTS file, which doesn’t scale well, or b) put the names in DNS, creating bucketloads more failure points and more complex networking.
Are you able to clarify exactly why this dependency is there?
Is there a fundamental mechanics dependency on reverse IP lookups for Snapdrive to work? OR is this simply the way it is coded. i.e. Could we just put a switch/radio button in SD that says, "do not use reverse IP lookups, just use IP addresses"?
