When we looked at our Predefined computer list, there were literally thousands of systems - one for nearly every person in the company, and we're only managing a few.
DS 7.1 SP1 (on SMP 7.1, where we made a change on what we call a Predefined Computer)
The issue is that to better manage Predefined Computers, we now 1) create a record in the DB for the computer, and 2) changed our query to look for all computers without an agent (or not managed).
In this case, there had also been an AD Import run for the entire organization, even though only a few were managed.
Every computer in the import that was not managed met the query requirement for a Predefined Computer and thus showed up on the list.
TECH182576 contains the fix for this issue.
