Servers appear in INV but don't show up in SLM

Hi all,

we discovered few servers which were dailly appearing into INV, but they don't show up in SLM. So, we investigated and found out about 1500 systems were in the INV and not in SLM. About 1200 from this are not reporting for more then 90 days, so... we will look for a solution to delete these from inventory.

We found out three (only 3) which were picked up by the SLM, but the hostname was slightly different. By deleting the records in SLM and INV, the problem was solved after two days (they are reporting now like it should be).

But the other 300, most are still dailly reporting, they don't appear in SLM! What could be the reason for this and how to solve/prevent this?

 

Has anyone got this situation already? How did you solved this?
