WSUS console & duplicate (workgroup) computer names
Scenario: Multiple machines in different places with different IPs, different Sus IDs, but same NETBIOS name e.g. "Alice" and the name can NOT changed. You only get one entry for Alice in the WSUS console, and the info probably relates to the last Alice that reported (don't know).
Couple of questions then:
1) Can anything be (easily) done in this scenario e.g. persuade MS client-side to report the client with a FQDN? Would fiddling with the Primary DNS Suffix help?
2) If not, then will all the Alices's still get (approved) updates OK i.e. is this essentially just WSUS console issue?
