Issue Details

I am trying to get a list of devices that are connected to my system, but I am getting devices that I am not aware of.
When I look in NI MAX under Devices and Interfaces, I get the expected list of devices, and no additional unknown systems.

Solution

Consider using the Hardware Property Node to call the Is Present property and see if the device is active in the system.

Since this VI will return every device on the network, see if the device is showing up under the Remote Systems section in NI MAX.
