Identifying client devices on the Administration Server

Dec 4, 2023

ID 3325

Client devices are identified based on their names. A device name is unique among all the names of devices connected to Administration Server.

The name of a device is relayed to Administration Server either when the Windows network is polled and a new device is discovered in it, or at the first connection of Network Agent installed on a device to Administration Server. By default, the name matches the device name in the Windows network (NetBIOS name). If a device with this name is already registered on the Administration Server, an index with the next sequence number will be added to the new device name, for example: <Name>-1, <Name>-2. Under this name, the device is added to the administration group.
