After migration from sccm 2007, there are many systems with no client installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    We have migrated our environment from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 , And Manual client push installation has been done by HeadQuarter SCCM admins on site code of our region.

    But as i see , in all systems collection based on OU, there are approx 50% systems with no client installed.

    There may be some stale systems in AD.

    Is there any way so that i can list out all Stale or old computers which are not in use anymore records of systems from Active directory and so that i move them to OU for which system discovery is not enabled.

    Also, it will very useful if i get more information on lastLogonTimeStamp and such more properties which specifies system as stale or OFF the network for some period..

  • You could also remove the objects without a client and adjust the settings in the Options tab of the Active Directory System Discovery Properties. By tweaking those options you can make sure that you're not discovering those old objects in the first place.

  • Hi Peter,

    I am not sure if all systems with no client installed are stale computers.

    Because after migration systems with no client installed can also contain systems which are offline since only 30 days( as we have migrated 20 days ago). and computer may be in use in future.

  • Active objects will simply be rediscovered through the Active Directory.
