I am trying to scan a new device in and it wants to overwrite an existing device each time but can't figure out why.
Scanning - cscript audit_windows.vbs hostname or IP address
Keeps overwriting same current device say hostname1.
It should show up as a new device as it is brand new Microsoft Surface right out of the box.
This is most likely your matching rules.
Some attribute in there will be matching.
On the device details, see if there is anything under "Discovery Logs" and in there, any mention of why it matched.
But I'm confused since these two devices are not the same so how can I get the new device to scan it and not keep overwriting this current device?
Menu → Admin → Configuration -> List
Find the match_mac item and change it from 'y' to 'n'.
You'll also need to delete the old device (because now they are "combined", other items will match such as UUID, serial, etc.
Once config changed and device deleted, run the audit again.
m_device match HIT on Mac Address (network table all). success
It shows a MAC and the systemID that belongs to the other device say hostname1.
