Excluding By FQDN When Scanning By Orginizational Unit (OU) Fails To Exclude Machine

Version 3

    Purpose

     

    This document will address an issue where scanning by OU and excluding machines with FQDN fails to exclude the machine.

     

    Symptoms

     

    You are scanning from a Machine Group setup by OU.  You exclude machine(s) by FQDN but they are scanned. 

     

    Cause

     

    The OU scans the machine using netbios rather than FQDN so excluding machines by FQDN will not work.

     

    Resolution

     

    Exclude the machines using the netbios name instead of FQDN.
