Battling with Duplicate Devices in the Probe

Recommended Posts

This is something that I am constantly seeing, and I am wondering if anyone has any insight in to it. I have a significant number of network devices where MAC Addresses are being detected that don't seemingly exist - these MAC addresses are always 2 Hexadecimal places away from a MAC address that does exist and they end up being/creating duplicate devices. It's easier to show in a screenshot:


 Checking on the probe to see how this was detected I find nothing in lt_LTNETScan.Log. The only mention of this MAC address is in ly_LTNETMap.log.

Here is the section it is in:

For all intents and purposes in all of these duplicate detections the MAC doesn't seem to exist.

What this is doing though is polluting network devices with duplicate devices that are inaccurate.

Anyone seeing this or got any insight?

Wish I could offer insight. I also am dealing with a crap-ton of duplicate Network devices that are messing with my asset sync and Warranty master. Following your post.
