I'm having the very problem. All clients... all 7000+ are showing an incorrect ip of 127.0.0.1 (loopback) for the ePO server / agent handler. The hostname however is correct.
I did some digging and with the help of some logging we had in place to trace changes of the agent on clients. We recently had an issue updating NIC drivers on our server, during which, the NIC (driver) was removed for a few minutes. Leaving only the loopback interface (127.0.0.1) available to windows networking. The NIC was restored and lan interface was brought up but I think the damage was already down and ePO services picked up the change and applied it to the sitelist. I think this because after that exact date this problem occurred.
Even though the box was restarted it didn't seem to fill in the serversitelist but I just follow;
to manually cycle services and that did it.Message was edited by: mrpg on 4/29/10 1:53:23 PM GMT-05:00
