Automatically sync agent/machine names with system names?

This question is answered

I just noticed that I have a number of agents where the machine name doesn't match the system name.    Changing that seems quite clunky -- the screen where you can see them both isn't even a screen where you can change the agent name. 

What would be a lot better would be:

a) display both on the agent rename screen

b) provide an option to automatically sysnc them where possible

Is there a better way to do that right now -- say, a script or something?

  • You can force an agent to have the same name as the Hostname permanently. This is not enabled by default. To switch it on (per group), see System > Naming Policy, and tick 'Force Machine ID to always be Computer Name'.

  • It would be nice to be able to target machine via a procedure, might be a feature request worthy, let me know if you want to request it and I will back you up.
