Is there a way to create a report in SLM8 to show all computers that have a duplicate computer name?
Thanks in advance
Probably not what you want to hear, but if you dont have database access, then you are right Excel is your friend.
This will give you a count of the number of times that name appears in the sheet so you can sort on it and pull out the data you are looking for.
Just in case that helps anyone else
I think you will be looking at a custom report for this one. I have a similar report that we use, but it would require database access as it is not currently possible to create custom reports from within the SLM interface. Do you have database level access?
Thanks for the response, unfortunately I only have access to SLM8 and not the DB :-(
I think I'll have to run an all computers report, export to excel, sort and highlight the duplicates that way then.
Do you have only the same computer name or the same bios serial number too?
I do this like Mark Potts in Excel with a complete computer objects export. I use there the 'conditional format' "duplicate values".
In SLM7 I created the following report :
Is this not possible in SLM8?
That's the Custom report Builder in SMACC from SLM7
That section was removed in SLM8 so it is not present in SMACC for SLM8, though all custom reports from SLM7 are carried across when a migration to SLM8 is carried out and the fields in the reports used still exist, but can't be edited in SMACC after that.
From the SLM8 Core changes doc:
"The report building functionality in Snow Management and Configuration Center has been deprecated from Snow License Manager 8."
