Issue



How can thousands of resources be efficiently deleted from a Symantec Management Platform (SMP) 7.1 database as performing this action via the console only works in batches of fifty?


Environment



Windows 2008 R2 running SMP 7.1


Cause



Due to the process that the delete item action runs through, you can never delete thousands of resources from the database via the console, and this fact has been present from the 5.5 days onwards.


Solution



Set User Access Control (UAC) to Never Notify, and then use one of the methods provided in HOWTO768, TECH11607 or TECH25651.
