Descriptive names
« on: August 03, 2010, 11:39:24 AM »
I am trying to assign intuitive names to individual machines, not groups.  When I try to add information to the Description field (in the Host / Worker tab) the information I enter does not display. 
How can I accomplish this?

Currently running 5.5.1.

This has been logged as a bug.

 When you attempt to set the host description via the 'Admin->Configure (Local)", the description value written into qbwrk.conf is enclosed with braces; eg. {test}.  This works.

But when it's set via right-mouse-click->Configure, the value is not enclosed in braces, and is ignored.  Try editing the qbwrk.conf by hand and enclosing the worker_description in braces.

Once you edit the file by hand, you will need to run "qbadmin w --reconfig" to push out the new config, and then you will need to do a "refresh selected" in the GUI to see the changes.
