MAP tool - User and devices are not up to date RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i have a question about the MAP tool. Why don't appear new users/devices in my current scan? MAP tool is only updating existing entries.

    New user and computer accounts (created after initial scan) are not listed in my reports. I have to create a new database to see the updated entries. Same with deleted accounts. Do I use the false settings or is this a bug?

    Thanks for your help

  • MAP tool only scans devices once, if successfully inventoried.
    It skips them in every additional re-scan and only looks for new devices. It will also not recognise if the device has been removed.

    With that said it is absolutely true - if you want a new 'picture' of your environment you do need to create a new database.

    It's not a bug or a setting error it's simply how MAP works. It's not designed to be a persistent inventory or change management tool but rather a migration tool:

    "The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) is an agentless, automated, multi-product planning and assessment tool for quicker and easier desktop, server and cloud migration"
