This section provides instructions for resolving issues with collections and inventory.
If you set the All Windows Embedded Devices collection as a linked subcollection and later delete the All Windows Embedded Devices collection, the collection is permanently deleted. To restore the All Windows Embedded Devices collection, uninstall and then reinstall Device Manager 2011.
After you uninstall Device Manager 2011 server, the All Windows Embedded Devices collection and subcollections remain in Configuration Manager console. Make sure to delete the All Windows Embedded Devices collection and subcollections after uninstalling Device Manager 2011. For more information, see Delete Collection Wizard in Configuration Manager Help. If you do not delete these collections before you reinstall Device Manager 2011, you will have duplicate collections in the Configuration Manager console.
