Macs getting duplicate GUIDs
We have 2 new Mac laptops. Both fresh out of the box. Both have the Altiris agent installed. They get duplicate guids and overwrite data in the system including the asset data which is bad. We deleted the Guid file from both and they both get a new guid with is also duplicated. They both get the same IP address but are not on at the same time. Is the agent GUID generated from the IP address on the Mac? They have different seial numbers and network names.
This has happened before and we are having data loss from this.
Anyone have any ideas?
But was wondering how this happens on a Mac.
It appears that our network is assigning them the netbios names of other computers on the network that previously had that IP. This has been going on with macs for years and is not a new issue.
