K1000 6.0 Asset Changes - Duplicate Names
I am in an organization where it is very commonplace that computer names get reused. As an example, a computer may get imaged and issued out as Computer 01. A year down the line it may get retired. A different system gets imaged and sent out as Computer01 (if the name is available). This is not ideal, which I understand, but it was the documented process for our organization before I came on-board. Since the new 6.0 upgrade now prevents you from using the same computer name in Assets, I'm wondering how people in similar situations are dealing with this. Am I looking at trying to force a process change? I would much rather use unique computer names that don't get reused.
Interested in hearing any ideas or changes that could help me. Thank you
