In an IT enterprise managed by a centralised configuration management software, we often come up with situations where we are not able to completely determine our target due to client agents not working on the workstaitons due to one reason other the other.


The common issues being client agent data corruption, the duplicate workstations issue (due to improper OS builds), inventory update issues, configuration management infrastructure issue or so on.


It is a better approach to mark the boundaries using the AD OU structure and cross check the data in the AD OUs with that of your inventory management database, so as to confirm are the assets present in enterprise are entirely managed by the configuration management software.
