My office has finally decided to start using a unified naming convention for our computers, so I turned on Rename Detection first, and then renamed a handful of laptops last night. Not one of them was renamed in Lansweeper. They were all detected as new machines.
I am currently running v. 6022

DNS issue? I have that sometimes, Lansweeper can't connect VIA the hostname because DNS isn't updated.

Try using the lsclient on the machine scanning by IP

lsclient.exe /scanonip

well, it would seem I've fallen into this same issue, almost. It does detect that it has been renamed, but the scan on the PC takes a very...very...*very*...long time. Like it's been scanning since yesterday about 2PM when I deployed it. It is now almost noon...and is still trying to scan. I renamed one Tuesday, it's now Thursday and still hasn't been able to scan it. Is there something going on with this option?

Well yes, Lansweeper would have to rescan the asset to pick up the change, and that wouldn't occur until your next scheduled scan of that machine. When you are in the asset, hitting "rescan asset" would force that to happen right away.

I have found that it can take up to 24 hours. Sometimes it takes a forced rescan of the old asset to make it change to the new name.
