I have a iDRAC 5 that is reporting the wrong host name. I checked DNS to see if that was the issue and it wasn't. Anybody have any thoughts? Google wasn't much of a friend this time.

If you have set up the host name via the iDRAC configuration utility but this is not the host name you see, check to see if a host name has also been set via OMSA as this can take precedence.
