Issue



When you have Network Discovery installed, Notification Server can sometimes create duplicates of a computer resource.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Using Network Discovery, discover a non-Windows (Unix/Linux/Mac) computer.
  2. Push install a Unix agent to this computer. 
    When the agent sends inventory back to the Notification Server, a duplicated resource for the same computer is created.

 


Environment



Notification Server 7.0 with Network Discovery installed.

Solution



As a workaround duplicate machines created in this way should be merged.
