Merging obsolete records in Configuration Manager 2007


To setup training room for my company, I need to reinstall windows as per needed. Common issue was console will automatically create new client records for duplicate hardware IDs. To overcome this, a script will do a clean up job for us.

Followed Jörgen Nilsson’s blog, and it’s work for me.

Below is the step:

1. Download script from here or Skydrive and save into C:\SCCMTools

2.  Go to Site Settings, create New Status Filter Rules











3. Key in the value as below.

    Message ID : 2642


4. Change tab to Actions, update Run a program
    (OS x86) cscript.exe C:\SCCMTools\merge.vbs    
    (OS x64) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cscript.exe C:\SCCMTools\merge.vbs


4. Change the site settings to “Manually resolve conflicting records” under the Advanced tab in site properties in the SCCM Console.


Done and no more obsolete records.
