DSU: Duplicate Systems - devices are showing up more than twice - EPO 5.3.1 build 188

We have McAfee ePO Build: ePolicy Orchestrator 5.3.1 Build 188, although DSU: Duplicate Systems is creating a high number of Dup Machine hostnames. We have been able to delete them manually, although there has started to be a high number devices. They look to be two McAfee containers Lost&found & the desired OU. Also wein epo Server Settings, the option 'Move Systems from their current System Tree Location to the Sync Group' is set. this was recently changed from 'Add Systems to the Sync group & leave them in System Tree' Although deplicate entries are growing since the change to 'Move Systems from their current System Tree Location to the Sync Group' Would you be able to advise,

Does kb88887 apply?  As a side note, 5.3.x is no longer in support, so I would recommend upgrading epo.

Are you saying that when you  select the option ''leave system'. You don't see duplicates. It only happens if you choose 'Move system' option.

ePO 5.3.x is EOL. I suggest to upgrade to supported build of ePO.

Re: DSU: Duplicate Systems - devices are showing up more than twice - EPO 5.3.1 build 188

Hi,

So originally epo was setup for :-

" Add System to the Sync group & leave them in their current System tree location"

which correctly did have duplicate hostname entries.  Although after determining which hostnames to delete (looking at the time it sync'd with epo & deleting the other entry ) we cleaned up "DSU: Duplicate Systems" pool. 

Although after switching to "Move System from their current System location etc "  we started to get more duplicate systems .

So now wondering which is the correct options.  Thanks
