Asset Tracking (IP, DNS, AGENT, etc.)

djprakash you've been of great help to me in the past, and I am hoping you can assist me once again.  In my current situation, I am managing a subscription that has been active for over 6 years.  When implemented, Agentless tracking wasn't available.  When Agentless tracking was made available it was enabled.  Now we're in the era of the cloud agent.


When I search a client endpoint IP address, I will find an IP tracked host, a DSN tracked host and an AGENT tracked host. When I search a client endpoint DNS name, I will find multiple IP tracked hosts, perhaps a few DSN tracked hosts and an AGENT tracked host.


I have updated my reporting templates to merge agent and scan data, but alas, I am finding results for either more than one unique host, or results for a unique host but with different last detected dates/times.


How do I muster up the confidence to stand by the results of a qualys report with the mish-mash of information?


I can't purge just an IP tracked host, or just a DNS tracked host, or just an AGENT tracked host of they share the same IP or the same DNS.  


What do you recommend ?
