PST Locator Task not finding all computers in Active Directory

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone know why the PST Locator Task does not find all computers in Active Directory on the first pass or how many cycles it must run before it does?  I am running EV 10.0.2, and have run the Locator task multiple times over the space of a week and it is scheduled to run 24/7.  I see events in the event log stating that it completes and the list grows slightly each time it runs.

@johnny Did you manage to get useful information from the link?

Nope, but I did make stop the check for NetApp filers and just manually marked them after the scan completed.  This resolved my issue, but did not answer the initial question.

The PSTLocator task performs it's searches in loops...  the first port of call is to look for Domains.  Then when it's run again, any domains that are selected to be searched will be searching using an LDAP query for 'computer' objects. (ObjectCategory = computer).

Hope that helps,
