Audit results for configuration files

In some situations, when auditing configuration files that contain multiple name/value pairs with the same name, the system may treat each name/value pair as a separate entry if it cannot clearly define the entry's primary key.

For example, during an audit of httpd.conf files, the system considers each of the following name/value pairs to be a separate entry:

ServerRoot xxx
ServerRoot yyy
ServerRoot zzz

Consequently, when an audit discovers a group of name/value pairs with the same name on multiple servers, the audit results may not list each entry as being the same object but with different characteristics. Instead, the audit results may list each entry as a distinct item.
