Trusted client name doesn't resolve correctly?

Helloes.

We have specified certain workstations that have access to the management via SmartConsole, under Permissions&Administrators -> Trusted Clients. One of these are set up with "Name" as setting, which I interpret as hostname or FQDN. This worked for a day, then that client get an error when trying to log in saying it's not authorized. 

Isn't the purpose of "Name" in this setting that you allow a certain PC access no matter what IP it has, or how does this authentication process work. There's not really a whole lot of information about this.

Afaik from help this means HOSTNAME in /etc/hosts !

hmm, that sounds odd. where will it get the IP that it needs to put in hosts in that case, and when does it update?

hosts on the management server only contains the management server atm, and is auto-generated.

same issue. I checked the /etc/hosts file is not there. must be caching the IP address somewhere else.
