  • Can you check and see that the machine name matches with DNS?

  • Hi Ev4,

    Just a note...I've merged the two threads you have on the topic because the issue appears to be the same for both. While one is for log file monitoring and the other is for services, both appear to be saying that monitoring displays alerts for the wrong computers.

    I'm still rather new to the cross platform monitors so I can't say for sure (I will ask around and see if anyone has more helpful information) but I would say there's an agent configuration issue. For some reason, the agent(s) reporting information back to opsMgr think they are installed on another machine. Perhaps you imaged a machine and duplicated it to these others? I'm not sure. My first suggestion would be to uninstall and reinstall the agent on the affected machine(s).

  • Hi,

    thx for the merging. i've tried many time to unistall and re-install the agent. for services, i find out a solution to work on it, which i will do some changed and write a script in my server to register the non-services process as an unique services. tested with the srcipt, it work fine.

    i just wondering log file issue how we can solve it? this issue quite trouble me. keep tell me not monitoring for wrong mechine. please help me find out on this solution. many thanks

    I know it has been a while since you posted this, but apparently we never came to a resolution. Is this still an issue you're having? If not, can you please let us know how you solved it? If you are still seeing this, please let me know and we'll continue to work on it.
