McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.9.0, 5.3.3


When you perform an Active Directory (AD) Sync in ePO 5.3.3 or 5.9.0, duplicate entries might be created for computers that exist in the System Tree. The duplicate entries can be created even though you selected the Leave systems in their current System Tree location only option.

This behavior differs from previous versions of ePO.
