Sorry for my bad english
We are evaluating open-audit (community-version 18.104.22.168) on a vmWare iinfrastructure. We use the VM cloning feature very often...
When we use the "Discovy device" with a "device IP" as a subnet format (ie 22.214.171.124-10, by example), we don't see all the relative devices. In "Debug mode", we have the following logs :
==> It's OK
But, next, a second device is processing, and we see :
So, the script update the device with System ID 1304 (instead of inserting it in DB), because this device "HIT on dbus-identifer"
As far that we know, it's not recomended to change this dbus-identifier (see https://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-uuidgen.1.html) :
If you try to change an existing machine-id on a running system, it will probably result in bad things happening
So, is it possible to deactivate this matching on dbus identifier somewhere ? In the config page, we don't have seen anything about that...
We have seen the DBUS_ID issue for VMware Clones with the latest release. You have two options, you can either simply change the way Open Audit matches devices or you could upgrade versions. It is discussed in this Wiki Article:
Particularly in this section:
Change it over to matching MAC and IP address if that suits your needs
The DBUS_ID matching was a recent version introduction which we changed away from again for the exact reason of cloning in VMWare. So if you were to upgrade past 126.96.36.199 you will also avoid the issue.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your quick answer and for pointing me in the right ressource
