Multiple instances of device in Defender console

Brass Contributor



Does anyone know why a single AAD/Intune Win 10 device would have 4 separate instances in the inventory list in MDE?  The iOS and Android devices all have a single entry.


Many thanks

Is this happened on all win 10 device? Onboarding script may be executed Multiple times on same device? Or its possible device offboarded and onboarded again with same name. usually inactive , offboarded device entries remain in MDE based on data retention limit set.
Thanks for your reply. It's a device I was using for testing so I'm not sure exactly. I have onboarding configured in Intune so maybe it got added after each Autopilot reset. It seems there's no easy way to clean it up so I'll just have to wait I guess.

Kind regards
