    When doing a inventory report, 85% of our host have no “other tag 1”. This field is blank. Had this problem, though only an handful, when we did a report for inventory last year, but we took the time to type them back in. Ill type them back in yet again, but is there a known issue with the inventory extract?

  • Ok, i guess Ill just type them in again.

    Just so you know Im not crazy, i pasted two lines in to a new xls from an old export and the one i did today, the orange is the missing tag.

  • @Roger-Saffle inventory doesn’t get imported/exported unfortunately. There isn’t a real nice way to handle associations.

    Import’s assume a “new” object, and inventory is handled by “associative” objects. Meaning an export of inventory and reimport won’t necessarily line up properly.

  • If I collect the Other Tag 1 info on a csv, can it be uploaded and added to the existing host?

  • @Tom-Elliott
    we do not really use other tag 2. We use other tag 1 as the asset ID when doing a fog host import.

  • There’s two "other’ tags that applied. Did they, by chance, get put into the “other” tag field? iOtherTag is the “other1” field and iOtherTag1 is the “other2” field, which I don’t know what the expectation is here.

  • Looked in the database, and the iOtherTag1 is indead blank on a majority of host. Ill look in iOtherTag when I get back to my desk.

    edit: Looked in database iOtherTag is blank for those machines missing “Other Tag 1” on the inventory export.
