Inventory Anomalies


Definition

An inventory anomaly identifies an item of equipment detected by the automatic discovery tool but that cannot be associated with existing item of equipment referenced in Product name - ev itsm.png.

EndDefinition
  • The status of this equipment is To be checked and the equipment will appear in a report.
  • You must therefore make the relevant corrections to associate the equipment correctly with existing equipment, create a new item of equipment or discard equipment.

Notes

  • The association between equipment detected by the automatic discovery tool and existing equipment referenced in Product name - ev itsm.png is carried out using the asset tag, serial number, network identifier or main user.
  • Once a correction is made to the equipment in error, the equipment inventory will automatically be updated and the list of anomalies will automatically be refreshed.

Examples

  • The automatic discovery tool detects equipment that is newly installed in the IT infrastructure but that did not undergo the standard reception and installation procedure.
             Example documentation icon EN.png  Printer directly installed by the user and not by the IT team
              ==>  Correction: Create the equipment in the inventory
  • The automatic discovery tool detects temporary equipment in the IT infrastructure. This equipment must not be managed in Product name - ev itsm.png because it does not belong to the company.
             Example documentation icon EN.png  Subcontractor's laptop
              ==>  Correction: Remove the equipment from the inventory
  • The automatic discovery tool detects equipment belonging to the IT infrastructure without any association.
             Example documentation icon EN.png  Detected equipment = HP4567; data entry error in the asset tag in Product name - ev itsm.png = HP4667
              ==>  Correction: Detected equipment merged with existing equipment referenced in the inventory to keep the HP4567 form only
