Multiple Client IP addresses - how to manage

Zenworks 11.3a

We have several PCs that have VMware workstation installed, which seems to result in the Zenworks client registering 3 IP adresses, one of which is the "real" one, the other two are "virtual".

This interferes with any bundle distribution and remote control, etc, as Zenworks doesn't know what the right one is.

All the virtual IP adresses seem to start with 169.254 (link local adresses), so is there any way of telling Zenworks to ignore IPs in that range?

Cheers,

Donald

No, you can't but for Remote Control, you can drop down and select which one you want and tell it to remember.
You can also opt to use DNS, which should be correct.

For any push from the server, it should be able to see which address is communicating and use the correct one.

May be an idea for product enhancement - the ability to ignore verain IP ranges? It does interfere with force run bundles, which is a big concern.

You can enter an enhancement request on the portal in my signature.

However, if you are having issues for pushing bundles to such devices, that would warrant an SR.
This is a somewhat common setup and I'm not aware of any such reports of issues in the past.
