New Instance of ZPA Connector in Admin Console

Quick question - when the ZPA connector communicates to Zscaler and a new connector entry appears in the admin console, what variables/data does the connector and/or ZPA service look at to determine if this is a pre-existing connector or if it is a new connector (and thus provides a new connector entry in the console)?

Akshay, every Connector has several unique parameters including HW fingerprint, client certificate etc. that ZPA leverages to differentiate between multiple Connector instances.
