Detailed Description

The Merge-CMConflictingRecord cmdlet merges a new Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager client record with a conflicting client record that has the same hardware information.

When System Center 2012 Configuration Manager recognizes a new client, it uses hardware information to check whether it previously created a record for that computer. For example, you might have reinstalled the operating system. The previous client record still exists with the same hardware information. If you manually resolve conflicts, you have the option to merge the new record with the existing record, create a new record, or create a record as a blocked record. You can also configure System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to resolve conflicts automatically. For more information, see Configuring Settings for Client Management in Configuration Manager in the TechNet library at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=269847.

You can specify conflicting records by using a name or ID or you can specify a site code to merge each of the unresolved conflicting records for that site.
