Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 3 - 10.3 Inventory
AIX
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Inventory

Situation

ZENworks Control Center shows one AIX Server under Devices > Inventoried > Servers even though multiple AIX LPARs (Virtual Machines) on the same host have the Inventory-Only Agent installed.

The single AIX Server shows the Device Name of one LPAR and the Hostname of another LPAR.
