This is because the computer location works in a similar fashion to the primary owner field. It will take the last X entries as being the primary owner / computer location.
Try forcing a couple of software scans on the machine in question and see whether the value updates. Go for at least 3 - 4 scans.
I was afraid of that. I suppose there's no way to change the value of "x" is there?
You can indeed!
Go to "configure -> services" then click on the Inventory tab. There's an option called "Primary owner login" which also applies to the computer location. lower this down to 2 and the next time the machine does an inventory it should reflect the changes in a more timely fashion.
Failing which you could push a script to the machines to clear out the following keys:
Then a command to run an inventory scan.
This would achieve the same result as changing the primary owner logins.
Hope that helps!
