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:

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. However, this task operates only on 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.
