Sorry for the delayed response. Thank you for adding this!


I haven't done a thorough check yet, but initially I thought it wasn't working as I checked an existing asset and it still showed as a desktop. So I rescanned it but it still showed as a desktop. So I deleted all previous snapshots, but still showed as a desktop. I then "reloaded" my TNI Storage, but that didn't help either. I had to delete the record in TNI and then scan it in new and now it shows as a laptop.


I'll do some more checking, but will existing laptops that are showing as desktops need to be deleted and rescanned? I see you can set the asset properties manually, but currently with 7,199 assets in my list, that would be a bit of a chore to go through and set these.

The detection is made only when the first scan is done. Afterwards asset type is not changed by the program. Really, they need to be deleted and rescanned. But in the next update we will add a possibility to redetermine the asset type and virtual type to avoid the need to clear everything and rescan from scratch or setting the properties manually.

Exactly. Using table reports you can do many things. And what you can't do there, you can do in Excel by exporting the report to CSV (like highlighting duplicate values, etc).



You're welcome 🙂 We have released an update today which contains the "Reset properties" feature. Just select your storage root, go to "Edit - Properties", click "Reset properties", tick the checkbox "Determine device type" and click "Apply". All devices' types will be redetected. This feature is safe for network devices, it will not reset their type to "generic device".
