Cloud Agent & Asset Groups

Hi All,

 

I'm asking for guidance on CA and AG's.

Scenario for my question:

192.168.1.0/24 network

Lets say I have 10 assets with agents installed (Windows Servers) & 10 different assets tracked via IP (Switches, router, printers). Location is "Office A". I have 20 total assets.

I map the 1.0/24 range and it finds 20 assets. I select to add all assets to an asset group - "AG-Office A". I get prompted to add the IP's to my subscription. I agree, then continue to create the asset group which holds 20 assets. All good so far..........

I now perform a scan on that group, checking the box to "Scan agent hosts".

Once complete, I go into Asset View and search for assets in that group (tags.name: `AG-Office A`) and I get a result of 30 - Comprises 10 Windows servers tracked by CA, 10 windows servers tracked by IP (The same 10 tracked by CA) and 10 Other devices tracked by IP.

So,

Q1: Why did I need to "Add to my subscription" the 10 assets that have Cloud Agent (In this case all servers with Static IP)?

Q2: Why is this duplication happening? They remain there until I delete the IP Tracked servers but now my asset group only has 10 assets - The IP Tracked other devices.

I'm missing something here.......

 

I recall from QSC17 that the ability to add Cloud Agent assets to Asset Groups was complete.

 

Suggestions, tips, or just point out the blindingly obvious - All answers greatly received.

 

Cheers
