VMs inventorized as type Other

Hi, I have quite wierd issue, my ocs inventory agent for unix is for some odd reason inventorizing VMs (vsphere) as type "Other", rather than "Server" which obviously make a bit of mess in glpi and overall categorization of assets. I was wondering, is there some way to force the unix agents that all collected machines are Server, perhaps within ocsinventory-agent.conf? I wasnt able to set it up with the rules in glpi, thats why im asking here.
Appreciate any tip.

You have ALREADY ask for the same question 6 days before !

If this is a problem create an administrative data and enter the info required !

OpenSource is 'as-is' ...

Hi, Sorry for the inconvenience, unfortunately, when i tried to create the question week ago, it was giving me an error, that the message is too long so it never was published (at least in front of my eyes).

Thanks for the hint, but if i create the "administrative data" doesnt it mean, that i have to automatically fill it in every asset? thats not the ideal solution...

You don't ask the question but you ask, 6 days ago, in the post https://ask.ocsinventory-ng.org/14754/incorrect-type-reported-for-a-server : there is no interest in a new post on same subject !

It's possible the agent doesn't give right value : help the developper giving a better value in the agent code, or set an administrative data and manually fill it : you could select number of similar hardware and set in 1 operation the administrative data foa all selected hardware !

For me, I named servers and user's computer differently, so it's very easy ...
