Once the workstations are received from Purchase Order, the assets are associated to Department or Groups. On performing a domain scan or network scan, the associated workstations are duplicated.
Say, "LD400 - PO # 2" is the workstation purchased and has been renamed as "AE-dept". On performing a scan, both the workstations appear in the List View. To avoid this you can reconcile the assets from either the PO details page or from the asset list view page.
1. Items with the Product Type as Consumables are not added to the assets and hence cannot be reconciled.
2. The scanned workstations can be reconciled only once.
3. You cannot reconcile workstations from the same purchase order.
To reconcile assets from the purchase order details page,
Click Purchase tab in the header pane to open the Purchase Order list view page.
Click the PO# name link of the purchase order for which the items needs to be reconciled. You can also use the Filter drop down to sort and select the PO.
From the purchase order details page, click Actions -> Reconcile option. The Reconcile Workstation(s)/Server(s) pops up.
Enable the check box beside the resource name and enter the Service Tag of the scanned workstation.
Click Reconcile button. The data in the purchased workstation is copied to the scanned workstation copied. On reconciling, the purchased workstation is deleted.
