I have a very strange issue happening...I am trying to import a computer and I have the IP address of the machine and the machine name (ZIN572) when I provision that IP it succeeds but the machine does not show in inventory. When I look at the information on the provision it shows the machine as being a totally different machine name (ZIN087) and that machine does not show in inventory either in fact that machine (ZIN087) does not exist on our network any longer. I'm really at a loss for how this could be happening. I physically went to machine ZIN572 and checked the IP and it was that IP address I did a release/renew and it just gave me the same address and the machine does not have a static address. I tried restarting the KBox hoping it would clear up the issue but it did not. Is there a way I can remove the ZIN087 machine from KBox when it is not showing in inventory but says it succeeded on importing?


Edit: I was able to run a manual provision using the hostname uninstalling the client on both the ZIN572 and ZIN087 then ran a manual by hostname provision of ZIN572 and it says it succeeded but it will not show up in inventory. I had the user reboot the machine and it still does not show. Any ideas on what may be the problem there?

Thanks!

Chris

Try stopping the Kbox services, deleting the KUIDs, and restarting the services. That will force a new ID and might cause it to show up.

I can't remember how to search the Kbox Inventory for a KUID, but I know there is a way. That would show you if the machine was really in inventory.

I would look at the DNS settings on the KBOX, if the DNS lookup resolves to another IP
