backup of two computers with the same computer name

Hi!

How to setup backup policy for 2 computers with the same computer  name. Is there any option? For example can I use Full computer name instead of Computer name? Or use IP address.

We will not be able to support the environment. Management Solution will not get the correct backup status and we cannot say that the deployment is always successful even if any workarounds are found.

Do you see both computers in the list of available ressources in the MS?

I see only one computer. And the newest computer overwrite the backup destination, that is the same for both. 

We will not be able to support the environment Is it official? VSR MS is still in offer.

Yes, unfortunately we will not officially support the environment. When computer names duplicate in a network, the management solution cannot identify each computer.
