It has conflict if the 2 machines has the same name at same time.

Hi! 
Acronis Backup 12.5 uses system names, so you'd need to adjust the system name of an affected machine.

We have client that has different sites and using only one name on their machines. Is there any way to identify the sites aside from adjust the system name of the machine? It will take too much time in changing the machine name to the system one by one.

Is there a plan to include renaming the machines in future updates?

Thank you.

Hi! 
As per the records in our internal sources, there are plans to implement functionality that will allow leaving comments to the backed up devices (internal ID for ref ABR-66122). The feature is expected to be added in the upcoming update.
