Predefined Maintenance Tasks

Updated: November 1, 2009

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

As your Configuration Manager 2007 site performs the tasks that you schedule and configure, site components continually add data to the site's database. As the amount of data grows, database performance declines.

Predefined maintenance tasks target the Configuration Manager 2007 site database and continually remove out-of-date data. Reducing the size of the database by removing unnecessary data improves the performance and the integrity of the database, which increases the efficiency of the site.

Primary sites have all of the predefined maintenance tasks available as listed below. The only predefined maintenance task available for secondary sites however, is the Backup Site Server maintenance task.

noteNote
Predefined maintenance tasks log their activity to the SMS_SQL_Monitor log file (SMSdbmon.log).

The Delete Aged Delete Detection Data maintenance task does not provide functionality in Configuration Manager 2007.

If you are using the out of band management feature, see the following for information about the Evaluate Provisioned AMT Computer Certificates and Reset AMT Computer Passwords maintenance tasks: How to Customize Maintenance Tasks for Out of Band Management.
