Hello,

yes, underscores ("_") are not allowed in hostnames. Unfortunately it seems to be possible to use an underscore in the initial configuration of the hostname, but later the UI does not allow to store the hostname. Please try to repace the "_" by an "-" and try to save.

Best,

Andre

MWG cannot save the host name. What is the host name of the system?

Some time we are getting this alert for saving policy changes but mostly for the configuration changes.

any criteria we have to follow for the hostname?
