Situation

 

When attempting to discover a machine, the discovery job fails with a message stating that the machine has already been discovered.

 

 

Resolution

 

This message is likely to occur if any of the following scenarios is true:

  • The machine contains a network adapter (or similar hardware device such as a Remote Access Card)
    that contains the same MAC address of a machine that has already been discovered
  • The machine being added was previously discovered under a different hostname
  • The machine being added was previously discovered under a different Domain/Workgroup


To resolve the issue, remove the previously added machine entry before attempting to re-discover the desired machine.
