Issue: Computer name in PDQ Inventory is EuropeanSwallow. Kick off a scan, PDQ queries DNS, and connects to the IP associated with that name. Due to a DNS lookup error, PDQ actually connected to KillerRabbit.
To find systems with this issue, I have a custom registry scan to get the computer name from the registry key "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ActiveComputerName\ComputerName". I want to compare that value to the computer name PDQ inventory is using. I cannot figure out what variable to use ( $(Computer:TARGET) ???) and how to compare that to the Registry value.
The intent is to try and find computers with a DNS issues, and correct them. I do not control DNS at my company, so I have to provide that group with a list of PC's that appear to have issues
