    It would be great if Samanage would assign the Name at the time the Computer is discovered.
    Currently, it looks like the job that assigns the Name only runs about every two hours.

    Unfortunately, the delay leads to Computer manageability problems which the Sites, Roles and Groups would have otherwise addressed when a Rule depends on the name to set the Site.

    Using the IP address to determine the site isn't appropriate because then computers for people who primarily work at one Site, and for which that Site's team is responsible, wouldn't be accessible by that team once it's been assigned a DHCP address by a different Site and the Rule changes it.

    What problem will this feature solve?:
