I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience or knowledge with gathering inventory for virtual machines (non-production) replicated from production machines using Zerto. The details between the original machine and the replicated one are the same (Name, IP address, Domain, NetBIOS, etc.). Does Flexera have a way to distinguish the two VMs or is there any tool that can be leveraged to correctly gather inventory in this situation?

Machine matching is generally done by serial number, though other attributes may also be used. You can see the criteria FNMS is using via the xml file located in C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\ImportProcedures\Inventory\Matcher
The inventory guide also contains information about the criteria used (around page 177)
I hope this helps.
