Exclude a collection from some maintenance tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    We have laptops that don’t come in a lot and are mostly kept off site. We don’t use out of band management. I was wondering if there is an effective way to exclude laptops either by chassis type or collection from the maintenance tasks that delete their data.

     Thanks,

     Awens

  • That's not good....

    How about this scenario… I have a machine which is still in AD but I want it to remain in SCCM with all its information as long as it exists in AD.

    Currently even if the machine is still in AD, it's still being deleted out of SCCM. Can I keep the record as long as it's in AD? Preferably with its collected data but if I can just have some data I suppose that's better than nothing at all.

     

    Thanks,

  • You could adjust the maintenance tasks to not pruge items at all or less frequently but then you are going to have a mess. Another option would be to write some custom script that would write a DDR for those systems which you want to remain in SCCM. I think there's some code in the SDK that would handle writing the DDR. It'd be up to you how to implement it to work for those systems.
