Folks,

My understanding of unique device records is something along computer name + UUID, if both are same, then the device info gets updated, but if one of those are different, then a new record gets created. Am I right?

Well, I have a case of Macs with 10.8/Win7 under Bootcamp, both Hostname and UUID are different, yet, the same OA record keeps on getting overwritten.

I see the name_match option under config, but it does not seem to have any effect. I don't know what are the match rules anymore and can't seem to find it in the documentation.

Edit: I have OA 1.5.2 on Win2003 and 1.5.3 on *nix and is the same result.

Mark has been tweaking this a lot recently. The system matching stuff is quite large and complicated now. If you want the details see the find_system function in m_system.php.

It looks like in 1.6.2 we have: system_key, mac_address, man_ip_address, serial, man_serial, hostname (option dependent).

Dual boot changes the system_key but not the mac_address so Open Audit thinks they're the same machine based on MAC.
