FNMS - SCCM Integration

We have FNMS 2019 R2 on-premises and integrate SCCM into FNMS.

We have observed data discrepancy issue between SCCM to FNMS and FNMS to SCCM.

Machines which are available in SCCM but not reflecting in FNMS. Daily Integration works without any error. 

Can someone provide the details of How SCCM Integration works and what is the criteria to Import SCCM Inventory into FNMS?

Hi @msutharh ,

If SCCM not work correctly and you see some devices that are missing then you can do the following:

Do you have a have also a CMDB import in place, may be the missing devices are marked as retired in CMDB then you will not see it in your reports.

Also an other thing that you may check if the device in SCCM changed the name, I observed this behavior if in SCCM the name is changed, in FNMS will remain with old name, may be you can check the missing devices after serial number, if it's available.

Re: FNMS - SCCM Integration

Hi,

The default integration should import all machines from SCCM into FNMS and remove from FNMS what is no longer available in SCCM. However, in some cases it gets a bit more complex.

You could start comparing the following tables:

  • ComplianceComputer
  • ComplianceComputerConnection
  • ImportedComputer
  • ComplianceConnection

This should allow you to understand which inventopry got created from which source, where source data went missing, where stuff got matched.

Re: FNMS - SCCM Integration

Also keep in mind that FNMS will take the data from SCCM and attempt to consolidate duplicates.  When a computer gets re-imaged with a different computer name, it is common for SCCM to report that as a new end point.  In SCCM you may have multiple end points in the database with different computer names, but the same Serial Number.  FNMS would consolidate these duplicates into a single Inventory Device, based on SCCM Last Inventory Date.

Re: FNMS - SCCM Integration

Hi @kclausen ,

I have a questions, if the Flexera are consolidating the duplicated into one, taking in consideration the last inventory date, why the host name is not changed in the FNMS.

This is a puzzle for me, as if I check the importedcomputer table, I can see the correct name, but in FNMS the name is different, same serial number and same connection id.

I tried also manually the delete from FNMS the inventory and let the system recreate it, but it still showing up with the old host name.
