device with multiple NICs

I have a NAS drive with 4 NICS. each of them is connected and has its own unique IP and MAC.

Lansweeper lists this as 4 separate assets. Can I join them in some way to only show it as one asset?

Thanks!

This is only possible if one interface sends data about all network adapters and all drives while scanning it through SSH or SNMP. Lansweeper will automatically remove an asset if one of it's MAC addresses was earlier scanned on another device. It will just drop the data scanned on the second interface. There is no function to merge multiple network devices into a single asset through a button-click. You might consider adding asset relations between the 4 assets.

considering that a lot of servers have more than one nic is lansweeper planning on incorporating this into the future?

Thanks Daniel.

I have already set up asset relationships, but it just makes my asset count wrong. Looks like I have 4 NAS drives instead of just one.

oh well. Thanks for your help!
