Removing computers from the SCCM console not as expected (less than 3 months)

98248192 1 Reputation point

Since a few weeks I noticed that some inactive workstations (disconnected from the network) are deleted from the MECM console before 90 days, while in the site maintenance tasks the cleanup of workstations is defined to 90 days

This is not related to manual deletions but to an automatic cleanup action.

What would be the explanation for you?

    Why do you say it is part of the maintenance tasks? How long did they exist within the database?

    How where they added to CM? Do you install the client? Exactly what problem are you trying to solve? aka why care that they are gone?

    Thanks for this answer!

    In fact I was wondering why some workstations have disappeared from the SCCM console and I made the link with the cleaning maintenance task, that's it !

    In detail, some workstations were added to SCCM at the beginning of November and on November 23 they disappeared for unknown reasons

    So, i did a quick review of the primary sites to make sure I didn't miss anything but I didn't notice any particular problem

    Now I'm analyzing the logs of the SCCM client to see if I can find useful information

    Any other ideas ?
