-When adding hosts, a host name is the result of reverse lookup or IP address if reverse lookup fails. Lookup is performed from the Zabbix server or Zabbix proxy, depending on which is doing the discovery. If lookup fails on the proxy, it is not retried on the server. If the host with such a name already exists, the next host would get **_2** appended to the name, then **_3** and so on.+When adding hosts, a host name is the result of reverse ​DNS lookup or IP address if reverse lookup fails.

If you wish hosts to be added to another group, add a //Remove from host groups// operation (specifying "​Discovered hosts"​) and also add an //Add to host groups// operation (specifying another host group), because a host must belong to a host group. Created hosts are added to the //​Discovered hosts// group (by default, configurable in //​Administration//​ -> //General// -> //​[[:​manual/​web_interface/​frontend_sections/​administration/​general#​other_parameters|Other]]//​).
