We'll briefly go over our warranty lookups. This includes supported hardware asset types, minimum data requirements for warranty lookups, and how often our warranty dates refresh.
Here's a summary of the hardware assets that we currently support for warranty and/or OS status lookups.
- Network devices
- Virtual machines (OS status reporting only)
- Printing and imaging devices
- Mobile devices
For each hardware asset that syncs into ScalePad, we require two specific fields for warranty lookups:
- Serial Number
In some cases, the exact Model number is required as well.
ScalePad performs regular warranty data refreshes through an algorithm every few days. However, in rare cases it can take up to 30 days to refresh after the warranty is purchased.
Our refresh algorithm
The refresh frequency of our algorithm increases as OEM warranties are more likely to be purchased.
We use a combination of serial numbers and MAC addresses as unique identifiers to match hardware asset data.
If duplicate hardware asset entries are detected, they're matched into one ScalePad hardware asset, not affecting your total asset count.
