What is the best way for inventory management in KBox Server? Should we trace computer inventory through “IP Addresses” or “BIOS Version Number” or any other way. The idea is to get least duplicate entries in the inventory with easier management.

  • I agree system name.
  • I would agree with using system name, but you can always use MAC Address, or service tag. It's just easier with system name because it is human readable.
  • Agreed.

  • I mean the computer inventory that is displayed against the Inventory tab in KBox.

In our environment, there are about 3000 computers so there is a positive chance of duplicate computer names.

  • Sounds like you need a new naming convention. We have over 20,000 with no duplicates.
  • If needed, you can use MAC addresses or service tag as above, which should have a reasonable amount of uniqueness for 3,000 machines.
