SEP 12.1 - Removing AD Groups from SEPM
I am currently working on a rollout of new workstations. We are replacing Windows XP machines with Windows 7 (talk about being late to the party). Originally my SEPM is setup with Active Directory Integration so when computers get placed into an OU and have SEP installed, they are then located in the same folder/group in the SEPM. For certain reasons, we now want to place Windows 7 machines in a seperate group so that they receive a different policy from the XP machines. In order to do that we have to make our AD structure more complex, which we don't really want to do right now. I want to break the AD setup in the SEPM so I can manually manage workstations but I want to make sure I do it in a safe manner.
Am I safe to somply delete the AD enabled group in the SEPM console? Will this delete objects (individual computers) from the SEPM? What will happen to the computers when I delete the AD group? My guess is that they will all move into the "Default Group" folder.
Thanks in advance!
