SEPM Version 12.1.3001.165 - How to specify number of days after which to delete clients that do not check in

Created: 24 Sep 2013 • Updated: 24 Sep 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Our SEPMs are version 12.1.3001.165.

 

When I go to Admin > Servers > Local Site > Properties > General, I cannot find the option to specify number of days that client is offline before it gets deleted.

Where is this option specified in the newer version of SEPM?

Been changed in 12.1

Admin >> Domain >> Edit Domain Properties

Right on the General tab near the bottom

See here:

Option to "Delete clients that have not connected for X days" has been moved.

Hello,

In version 12.1 of the SEPM, the location for adjusting the setting to delete clients which have not connected for X number of days has moved:

  1. In the SEPM, go to the Admin page.
  2. Select Domains.
  3. Under Tasks, select Edit Domain Properties.
  4. In the Edit Domain Properties window, on the default General tab, note the option to "Delete clients that have not connected for specified time."

Configuring a low value for this setting would clear up the duplicates more quickly
