we are on LD2016_SU3 and we can reproduce this problem very clearly.
After Importing BareMetal devices via CSVIMPORT-Tool we start an OSD-Task on them.
After that Task I have the same device 5 times (1 device for every reboot) in the database.
Regarding the settings in the INVENTORY - SERVICES it should not be possible to have 2 Devices with the same MAC or NAME.
So late at night the database Job deletes the duplicated devices.
But the mtc. drops the wrong entries. So you have a missmatch in the Agent ID on the client to the Database.
So you loose:
- Remote Control
- Policy Tasks
- Portal Manager
- etc. etc.
What you do not loose:
- Inventory Updates
If I figure out a Device with that issue I delete the device in LANDESK and force a /SYNC scan.
Do you see any option for us here, how we can figure out affected devices and clean up that mess that LANDESK is doing here?
Okay maybe I found some of them via a Database-Query for the LAST VULSCAN:
select Computer_Idn, DeviceName, VaLastScanDate, LastUpdInvSvr from dbo.computer where VaLastScanDate IS NULL
or a LDQUERY:
