endpoint keeps reinstalling

hello all, 

for epo we use the active directory discovery

Now we see that epo keeps reinstalling the mcafee endpoint client.

Is it possible when the client ip changes that is automaticaly does a reinstall?

Is there no option, when only the hostname is present in the db, that he doesn't do a reinstall


thank you

Re: endpoint keeps reinstalling

What specifically keeps getting reinstalled - the agent?  In your ad sync settings, do you deploy the agent?  If so, do you do a forceinstall?   Do you have it set to install only on systems that do not have an agent?  How do you know it keeps getting reinstalled?  What are the symptoms you are actually seeing?
