K1000: Why am I still getting duplicate assets after mapping BIOS Serial Number?
Recently, I switched the way an inventory item is linked to the asset and I was under the impression this would take care of a concern of mine. We reuse machines quite a bit and for good measure, we remove and replace the harddrive before reusing. Sometimes we have to rename the machine after reinstalling windows and I thought linking the inventory item to the asset (BIOS serial #) was the solution to our problem, apparently I was wrong.
THE PROBLEM: After reinstalling windows, renaming, and adding to our domain, a single machine is creating another separate asset with the same name (BIOS Serial #) and also creating another inventory item.
