Is there no way to get name resolution in a traceroute?  

I configure switches with...

configure dns-client add name-server <reslover IP> vr VR-Default
configure dns-client add domain-suffix <suffix of choice>

And yet I still get...


traceroute to 4.4.4.4, 30 hops max
1  1.1.1.1                                0 ms        1 ms        5 ms
2  2.2.2.2                               0 ms        0 ms        0 ms
3  3.3.3.3                               0 ms        0 ms        5 ms
4  4.4.4.4                                6 ms        6 ms        7 ms


Am I missing something easy here?

Hi Jason,

As far as I know there is no way to get name resolution for the hops in the taceroute.

DNS configuration will help to traceroute a host name instead of an IP as follows:
traceroute www.extremenetworks.com

However the hops will be still listed as IP.
