    I have the same problem sometimes and I already reported this a long time ago.

    Same problem here with servers, that answer through different names due to DNS CNAME entries. Will there be a fix?

    i get the same too with a good proportion of the devices on my network.

    Pretty frustrating really.

    That's more a DNS issue than a PDQ issue - have a read of this:

    Yes, that is one poissbile solution, I know this and similar articles.

    But there is also the case, that a server simply has more than one name.

    You could change the collection to ignore your wireless IP range; However, when the server deploys, it's going to use DNS to locate the machine, NOT the record it has in the database.

    I know this is an old post - but this is exactly my issue.  I am trying out Inventory and it works great, except for my laptops that connect both wirelessly and wired.  The scans fail when DNS on the server has not updated to the 'live' ip address.  I hope there is an answer since I don't see many other posts about this.

    Thanks.
