Shared Guid

    Ok so I am battling a few issues here...


    I have an automation policy enabled that emails me on "Shared Guid". I have received these for a while and have never truely acted upon it but today, I took a look and it seems that 2 machines have received the same guid and I just cant figure out how to get them to reset and grab a new guid. 


    any help appreciated...

    Suspect that in case of shared guid they already should be merged into 1 resource.


    To reset GUID you can run command line on managed computer 

    "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent\AeXNSAgent.exe" /resetguid

    or via RAAD tool (to make sure that their GUID is identical, etc.)


    Also there is article about Shared guids (probably you've already seen them)

    Sorry had a few vacations so im finally back at this!

    so it is interesting... /resetguid does not reset the guid but just grabs the guid from the server again.

    There is a report labeled "Duplicates that Cannot be Merged" - and it seems they have redundant mac addresses (due to an external USB NIC)...


    I havent tried RAAD but will give that a shot.

    Ive seen the shared guid links, but will check them out again. Thx
