Who, what, when will decommissioned clients be removed?

    Question

  • Hi,

    Does anybody knows what will remove clients marked as decommissioned (not obsolete or inactive, but decommissioned) from the database?

    And when will it be triggered? I don't see any of the maintenance tasks doing that or at least none of them are descriptive of doing so.

    Thanks.

    Best regards

  • The "Delete Aged Discovery Data" Maintenance Task deletes the system records that have been inactive for some period of time (90 days by default). This includes system records that are decommissioned and obsolete (because these types of records never become active).

  • Hi,

    As Kerwin pointed out, Delete Aged Discovery Data:

    Delete Aged Discovery Data: Use this task to delete aged discovery data from the database. This data can include records that result from heartbeat discovery, network discovery, and Active Directory Domain Services discovery methods (System, User, and Group). When this task runs at a site, data associated with that site is deleted, and those changes replicate to other sites.

  • Thanks Kerwin and Lorry,

    It works as Kerwin pointed out and to give a bit back, I just contributed to the docs so the description for the "Delete Aged Discovery Data" now includes a note for the decommissioned devices.
