There is no easy way at present to find and merge duplicate assets. It would be great to have a “smart merge” where Syncro recommends possible duplicates for being merged based on factors such as the serial number (since the hostname may be different from the previous incarnation).
this is trully needed, I have sugested this by email, one or two years ago
another match that we use is MAC address, but I think Syncro surely has other methods to find duplicates.
How can this NOT be an issues? I have to keep cleaning out / merging after updates or recuycled to a new user. This makes it more work to invoice (per machine). I don’t want to delete since I wish to retain all history of that hardware to follow. I submitted this as a script to run occasionally if that is easier. but please offer something here.
