Return the fully qualified domain name associated with a given IPv4 or IPv6 address. The DNS server must be configured on the device in order to resolve the domain name.
address—String containing an IPv4 or IPv6 address.
name—Hostname associated with the IP address.
The following SLAX example initializes the variable
address with the IP address 198.51.100.1. The
$address variable is passed as the argument to the
jcs:hostname() function. If the DNS server is configured
on the device, the function will resolve the IP address and return
the fully qualified domain name, which is stored in the variable
var $address = "198.51.100.1"; var $host = jcs:hostname($address);
<xsl:variable name="address" select="198.51.100.1"> <xsl:variable name="host" select="jcs:hostname($address)"/>
host = jcs.hostname("198.51.100.1")
