MAC Address Query
I'm creating inventory reports which includes Mac address in one of the columns. The organisation which i'm working for is toying with the idea of Asset Tagging all devices (PC's, Servers, Laptops) with the last 4 digits of the devices MAC address, so that it can also be linked to the Altiris database when logging a call against it.
Does anyone know if the last 4 digits in the Mac address is always unique, or do you know how I can compare / search for this in excel?
I currently have an excel report extracted but it's only showing me duplicates of the whole mac address (where pc's have been rebuilt), but not specifically to the last four digits...
Were were originally going to use the serial numbers but have discovered on Dell serial numbers, that the last four digits are often the same (with the first 3/4 bieing unique, and HP is vice versa...
Any help appreciated.
