Does anyone know where FNMS pulls the computer name for an inventory record? Is it read from the bios of the computer? We use the FNMS Inventory agent on devices as primary and SCCM as a secondary collection. We are seeing an influx of computer names coming in lower case on inventory records but they are uppercase in Active Directory and on SCCM servers. Just curious where the inventory record pulls the computer name from that it would be lowercase in some instances.

Sorry I should have asked a follow up question. Why does the same inventory record bounce between upper and lowercase? Does it depend on the source of the inventory record? I.E. SCCM vs FNMS agent? It is odd that if using the netbios name it changes back and forth. I attached an example. It also changes the linked computer asset record to lowercase when this occurs. The team that supports the devices standard is uppercase computer name so it is a nuisance for them. Thanks!

As the device is linked to an asset, my guess would be that you have a business adapter that is updating the name of the asset to all caps (which also updates the inventory device name). Then when the import/reconcile runs the name is changed to lowercase to reflect what is coming from the inventory.
