    HI, I'm not a techie but I had the same issue and this is how my techies resolved it:

    Get the Alert Logic tool to pick up data from your DNS server. I don't know the detail of how this is done but in a nutshell that's what required. Once you've done that you may still find that some devices are still only identified by their IP address. If this is the case then you need to set up the pointer records on these devices. Here's a link to how this is done.

    Hope this helps.
