‏2013-07-18T08:48:28Z |

Hi All,

I had found some of the PC had duplication at console.

And this directly increase the amount of client show.

I had look into the log but cannot found any error  as well.

It is anyone facing this issue?

I do not done any reinstall but the PC just show double inside console.

From the attachment can saw the PC stop at 10:24:53. on 1st of July 2013

    Re: Why PCs will show duplicated in console?

    ‏2013-08-14T07:07:56Z  

    The most common thing that causes a computer to be duplicated in the console is if the computer is a virtual machine, and the virtual machine is reverted to an earlier snapshot, or the virtual machine is cloned.  Do you think one of these things could be the cause?

     

    A duplicate client could show up if the client decides it needs to get a new computer id.  This happens during what's called "client register".  I don't see anything in the log that's referring to registration or to computer id, so I don't think this is the right log snippet to diagnose this problem.

    Hi Brian thanks for the reply. But I am sure all the machines here is physical machine. It is any where else to get the right log?

    Because based on the observation there are nothing change between the machine itself.

    They have the same IP hostname CPU OS and etc. Just having one more record and old record is offline.

    It is any else application to collect the further logging instead of existing log?

    The log that you attached is the right log.  Maybe it's not for the right time period?  It should say something about it's 'computer id' during 'registration' if the server thinks the client is duplicated.

    Hi,I also come across with the same scenario but didn't tried to diagnose the problem.

    For interim solution I used to run computerremover utility to remove the duplicates.

    Hi BestFortune,

    I will use the same matter in this first since still unable found the root cause.

    Now even the patch report also facing the issue that do not tally in the total figure.

    I am still not sure it is related with this client duplication.

    Wish by remove the duplicate user will solved the issue.

    hope can hit 2 birds with one stone.

    Thanks
