Attributes to differentiate between Desktop and Laptop

Dear Experts.

This has been very common question with most of the customers.

Why Laptop has been catgorized as Desktop?.

Primary IP Address is not an attribute for WIndows/Unix CI Type.

Regards

Re: Attributes to differentiate between Desktop and Laptop

To the best of my knowledge we use only the desktop/server classification in uCMDB, which is based on OS information returned,  Laptops are categorized as desktops based on this gathered OS information.

Re: Attributes to differentiate between Desktop and Laptop

The category of a device is decided by it's discoveyred attribute. In this case, it's decided by discovered OS.

So it's normal that there is difference between humain understanding.

 

For example, if we've a very powerful laptop with same OS/software as a server, it would be categorized as Server by our product.

 

The concept of primary Ip is still not very clear. It's hard to decide the primary ip some time.

As practical suggestion, I think it's better to use the applicaion_ip of the UDA ci.
