Removed boundary, but still see computers. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

            I have dozens of IP range boundaries in our System Center 2012 implementation.  I have removed several of the boundaries but i still see the computers in the "all computers and servers" collection.  the reason we removed the boundaries is because we no longer want to monitor any of the computers in those IP ranges.  my questions are:

    1) does it take time for them to disappear? if not, do i have to delete them manually?

    2) what happens to the installed client after its boundary has been removed? will it lose communications with our primary server? does the client need to be removed manually?

    thank you for any help.

  • Boundaries have *nothing* to do with resources appearing in the console or the collections that they belong to.

    Boundaries are used by clients for three and only three things:

    - Content location

    - Auto (primary) site assignment

    - Secondary site usage

    That's it. Clients do not need boundaries whatsoever to communicate with the site or function properly.

    If you do not wish to manage systems, then you must uninstall the ConfigMgr client agent from them.
