Domain Computers showing as Offline
I am managing a network with about 60 laptops on it. PDQ Inventory seems to think about half of these are offline at any time despite the fact that they are definitely not. This becomes quite the problem when trying to roll out software as several of them will fail due to offline status. If I continue to redeploy to them it will often pick up a few of the failed ones throughout the day. It seems several of the laptops pretty much always show as online as they should and conversely there are others that never show as online. A lot of them flip between working and not depending on the day/week.
Any ideas about this? It's been annoying me for some time now and I've been crawling through DNS settings and such trying to find what could be the issue. No joy as of yet. I'm hoping more minds and more qualified ones might be able to help.
Thanks in advance, Max.
