Will deleted computers accounts be rediscoved

    Question

  • I inherited an Active Directory where the admin just reformatted the computers, gave it a new computer name and then added it back to AD.   Sometime old computers were just taken offline and cannot be accessed on the network.  These old computers were never removed from AD, but that cleanup is a separate project.

    Meanwhile since these old computers have at one time connected to SCE there is a record for the old computer in SEC Managed Clients.

    Of course both the new and the old computer have the same Serial number so that helps some

    Can I just delete both the "old" and the "new" computer accounts in Administration and let SCE rediscover the "real" account?

    Thanks - Tom Gilbert - TGilbert2000
