Assuming the agent is not being reinstalled, then ePO should simply update its entry with the new machine name... if it's creating a new entry with the new name that would tend to imply that a new agent guid is being generated. Are you reinstalling the agent when the machines are renamed? Or rebuilding the machine from an image?
The machines started to show up as unmanaged. I gave it a few days to update and see if they would take over the old machines in epo. They did not. I then tried to redeploy the agent to these particular machines. The agent says it installed but they are still showing up as unmanaged.
Im thourghly confused happy
Are you getting a new intry in ePO for the new machine name, though?
yes that would seem to be the case.
Okay, that would really imply that the agent guid was being regenerated. Exactly how are the machines being renamed?
i am looking more into this. I have someone doing the renaming. Im almost sure they are going into my computer properties and changing the name there. No images or anything like that.
