Cloned UDA agents

I am concerned that I have some UDA agents that have been cloned within our environment and I'm trying to create a report to identify.  I know that there is a unique UDA ID but can't seem to find the attribute to query against.  I don't believe it is the global ID attribute under the UDA CIT but not sure.  Can someone confirm which attribute I'm looking for?

Thanks,

Re: Cloned UDA agents

The attribute is ud_unique_id and you can find it on the Node CIT:
UdUniqueIdUdUniqueId

You must have a UD Agent installed on the host and you can discover the value with jobs: Inventory Discovery by Scanner, UDA Status Collector and Host Connection by Shell.

You will not populate Ud Unique Id with job Inventory Discovery by Manual Scanner.

Re: Cloned UDA agents

If you have unique id cloned, you will be merging the Nodes into one Ci, since the unique id is reconciliation key. You can often identify sevrers merged if you find nodes with many IPAddresses connected. Then you can check the ci history of the node and see if there is a name  attribute change.
