    That is an issue that we fixed recently. It is currently available in the Nightly. We used to just rely on Kerberos to verify the computer name, but now the runner verifies the computer name itself.

    I do not believe it is possible to do this with Collections. You could create a Report, but you would have to visually inspect it for anomalies.

    One question. For my own education, is there a variable in PDQ that refers to the computer name as listed in PDQ?

    Yes, but it's only available in Tools with a Run Type of Local.
