I have an issue I've noticed becoming a problem for me. Many of windows agents nodes that have secondary network interfaces are all showing up as non agent nodes in addition to the main agent node in manage nodes. This makes one machine eat up more than one license from my license pool. I have many developers that add weird extra interfaces to their windows machines and each one when it sends traffic shows up as a new node in manage nodes. Why are secondary interfaces costing me against my license? Shouldn't the agent be smart enough to know it's the same machine in the database?
Hey Bill - if there's logs being transmitted from the additional interfaces, they will appear in SEM based on the source IP of those logs. However, I'd recommend creating a support ticket as there are tweaks that can be made to the agent config files which *should* deal with the issue.
