Hardware Manufacturer missing

I was wondering if I could manage the Manufacturer (hardware) field in All Nodes after a discovery action, because a lot of records are empty on this field... why a lot of brands are not recognized in PC, Printers, Switch, Routers...
I'm running Alloy Discovery 6.1.1

I don't have many blank manufacturers, but I can't imagine the popular manufacturers have blanks. As far as filling it in I don't think you can. You can create a field to have that info there. You can also populate that information in Navigator if you have it.

I think that what Maurizio meant is, Discovery is not populating the Manufacturer field for all records?
Maybe you can identify if this behavior is specific to a network device type?
