Device conflict between inventory sources

Hi,

We have a few inventory sources - TADDM, SCCM and the FlexNet agent

There are a small number of devices that, despite having the agent installed and uploading inventory, are not showing Flexera as the inventory source. They are, for some reason, reporting as TADDM being the source.

Flexera is set as the primary inventory data input.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Device conflict between inventory sources

Hi,

You can try to follow the inventory trace back to the source to find out where they went missing.

  1. Try ImportedComputer_MT to see if they were imported from all sources.
  2. If the FNMS inventory is missing, then check the Inventory Database, tables Computer_MT and InventoryReport_MT.
  3. If they're missing form there, check your Incomming Inventory folder for BadLogs.

Best regards,

Re: Device conflict between inventory sources

Thanks

I have a device which is in ImportedComputer_MT - 3 lines all showing TADDM as inventory agent (strangely 3 different ExternalID, all other details the same)

Is in Computer_MT but not in InventoryReport_MT

Nothing in bad logs - this is checked frequently

Re: Device conflict between inventory sources

Here's how I see things:

  • I have a device which is in ImportedComputer_MT - 3 lines all showing TADDM as inventory agent (strangely 3 different ExternalID, all other details the same)
    • This at least rules out failed inventory matching or something like this.
  • Is in Computer_MT but not in InventoryReport_MT
    • The Computer_MT entry can be result of Beaocn AD integration, so that's ok.
    • Missing InventoryReport_MT entry indicates there never has been a FNMS Agent inventory file for this device.
  • Nothing in bad logs - this is checked frequently
    • If it's not a bad inventory file, it's likely the inventory is missing completely. I would start checking the FNMS Agent on these devices.
