    Obsolete Clients :

    Obsolete client s are those that have been replaced by new ones. This usually happens during refresh OS deployments where the hardware stays the same and thus the hardware id is the same but the SMS GUID changes because the OS has been reloaded or the GUID is regenerated for another reason but the hardware remains the same. Reasons -

    1. hard disk swapping

    2. Renaming machines

    3. Reimage OS

    4. Reinstalling SMS/SCCM agent on the machines without proper uninstall.

    This can be managed by as per your required day's:  Open SMS Administrator Console-> Expand Site Hierarchy-> Expand Site Settings->Expand Site Manitenance-> Select tasks-> open "Delete obsolete Client Discovery data" properties and enable it.  

    And create a collection based this query and delete the machine's http://www.redshiftsolutions.ca/sccm-duplicate-computers-collection/
