I have lots of laptops that are connected both via wired and wifi. So I often have a similar problem where a laptop will roam around the building and pick up different IP addresses, making it difficult to find them using the last known IP address.
I don't think there is a real "fix" for that. At least the Agents installed on the laptops will check in with the Server every 60 minutes (by default) to look for new policies. If that's not fast enough you might consider lowering the Agent->Server communication interval, but you need to make sure that your ePo server is beefy enough to handle the additional traffic.
I don't think you shoudl be seeing this problem :confused: - our sites use DHCP to allocate IP adresses and hence a clinet IP address may change periodicaly.
My understanding was that ePO tried first of all to resolve the clinet machine name usning DNS/WINS before resorting to trying via the last ised IP address...... so are client IP addresses actually resolving from machine names correctly from the ePO server ? - if not check your Proxy Sever settings in ePO to make sure that all local LAN FQDNN Paths are excluded.
