Changes on an Endpoint and Duplicates

L1 Bithead

In Cortex XDR, what changes on an endpoint could cause duplicate endpoint instances to appear? 

Example: Host A appears twice, but one instance is connected, the other instance has a connection lost status and is using a different IP address.


Under the Endpoint Administration Cleanup settings, the three parameters that can be used remove duplicates are MAC address, IPv4 address and hostname. 


If any of these are changed on an endpoint with an agent for some reason, can this result in a duplicate entry?
