Delete Inactive Client Discovery Data Task Overview

Updated: January 1, 2013

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

The Delete Inactive Client Discovery Data task deletes inactive client records from the Configuration Manager 2007 site database.

Clients are marked inactive in two ways:

  • When a client is flagged as obsolete it is also marked as inactive.

  • The client status reporting feature in Configuration Manager 2007 R2 can be configured to mark inactive clients if the option Update Configuration Manager 2007 site database with inactive client information is selected in the Options tab of the Client Status Reporting dialog box.

Client status reporting is not automatically installed with Configuration Manager 2007 R2. For more information about client status reporting, see Client Status Reporting in Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and Later.

The Delete Inactive Client Discovery Data task is similar to the Delete Aged Discovery Data task. When this task operates, Configuration Manager evaluates only the discovery data for resources that are Configuration Manager 2007 clients. The Delete Aged Discovery Data task operates on all discovered resources.

When enabling this task, you should configure the schedule to run at an interval greater than the Heartbeat Discovery schedule. This allows active clients to send a Heartbeat Discovery record to mark their client record as active so that this task does not delete them.

Defaults    Delete inactive client discovery data older than 90 days; Runs on Saturday between midnight and 5:00 A.M.. Not enabled by default.
