    Hi,

    Sorry, but we have another question regarding the console. We've run into a number of machines with the same machine name (Owner-PC) and the agent fails to deploy until we clear the list of successful installs each time.

    I want to have RAC identify clients based on MAC address only instead of by hostname. I toggled the following two settings in the RAS options:

    Enable Computer Name Renaming
    and
    Enable Mac Address Renaming (from valid to another valid)

    Those two seem to indicate that they're the settings responsible for whether or not MAC address/hostname are used as part of the identification. When I change the Computer Name setting to either Yes or No RAS still asks the einstallers to quit installing.

    What do I need to do to make RAS only identify based on MAC address? Or is this a bug?

    Thanks,

    Graham
