DNS Resolution in Traceroute?


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

I configure switches with...

configure dns-client add name-server vr VR-Default
configure dns-client add domain-suffix

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:
code:

traceroute www.extremenetworks.com



However the hops will be still listed as IP.
