Hostname length limitation

Hi, 

Our devices (iPads) name are assigned by our MDM (username + SERIAL) but they are too long for HM. Is there a way to have longer hostnames in HM ? We are using 6.6r1.

Thank you

Jérémie,
According to my records, we increased the maximum supported length of a hostname from 32 characters to 64 characters in HiveOS 6.0 (and HM should have made corresponding changes). 

How long do you need?

Hi Mike, thank you for your answer.

64 should be enough but for Apple iOS devices, it gets shortened to 15 characters only (ex : DMPP64Snt09ce2d) . For Android, it's longer (ex : android-c338d0c69f9*****).  Maybe it's an Apple limitation ?
