An unmanaged device can be configured with a specific hostname, making DHCP requests show the correct name of the device.

Setting a name in Nebula changes the name shown in nebula, but the hostname on the device does not seem to update from the default NWA5123-AC-HD and GS1920.

    Agree with this.  As well as in a dhcp request, the default name of the product is what shows up in LLDP Neighbors listings.  i.e.  A GS1920-24HPv2 shows a System Name as GS1920 when looking up LLDP neighbors.  It would be better if it showed the switch name and location.
