What is the BDSSA version that you are using?
for Custom Reports it may help to either:
1.) Query Studio: Add the Filter: "Show Latest Server Attributes" from the Filters folder, when you use the Inventory NameSpace
2.) Report-Studio: You could directly add the Filter Expression: [IL Inventory].[D_SERVER].[IS_LATEST_VERSION] =1
Not sure if that really solves your issue, but it may help.
Thank you for your help. By using the filters I will be able to remove the servers I don't want to see.
Glad i could help.....
Jackie, keep in mind that servers added into BSA have a unique ID tied to them. You can add a single server into BSA multiple ways (short name, FQDN, IP address) and BSA would think they were 3 different servers. So it's important that you get the server name correct during import. I would never recommend renaming a server in this scenario and always decommission a server and re-import it.
Changing the name won’t change the server id though. but if you include the server name in the report it would probably show multiple times if the name was different unless you show only the latest version of the server.
