SCCM 2007 migrated clients (SCCM 2012) are still visible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We migrated some SCCM 2007 Windows 7 clients to SCCM 2012 (upgraded the clients via push).
    This worked fine for most of the clients but not all so I cannot just delete clients from SCCM 2007.

    How can we clean the succesfully migrated? I cannot see which ones are succesfully migrated in SCCM 2007, the all show active (even the succesfully migrated ones).

    Pls advise.
    J.

  • The client will become inactive if it's not requesting client policies, sending heartbeats, sending inventories, or sending status messages any more in a period of by default 7 days (but it all depends on the configured intervals). Also, if you delete clients that are still active, they will come back with the next heartbeat if they are still active.

  • Btw: are you sure you can just delete a client and it will reappear without cuasing any issue?

    That will work.

    I would write a script that connects to the CM12 and enummerates all clients and removes those that are found on the CM07 site.

  • So I could change the heartbeat discovery interval to 1 hour and that would speed up the process in some way (not showing active or other property change)?
    Is there a manual way to trigger all the updates in one go so I can see inactive clients right away (or would the heartbeat discovery change do the job)?
