    There are any probe that create an alarm for duplicate IP and MAC for UIM models, like Spectrum ? If not i think It is a good Idea to create that because eventually the cm_computer_system has entries for the same model

    Hi,

     

    The discovery server should be able to take care of duplicate mac addresses and perform any correlation before it reaches the cm_computer_system table. 

     

    Are you seeing any specific examples of this? 

     

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Some times a miss oriented system manager changes the server hostname, and other times the VMware probe create another entry, I would like an alert when these thinks ocours

    Currently not his can not be done out of the box with the current product.

    You should post this as an Idea so product management can consider it for a future release.
