Unable to Delete Computers from Console

Created: 17 Apr 2013 • Updated: 18 Apr 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a need to delete a large number of abandoned PCs or PCs that have been disposed of however when I went to do it nothing happened. Looking in the logs there appears to be a SQL SP missing! The short, key point to the error message is:

Could not find stored procedure dbo.sp_Inv_Patch_Computers_Subject_For_Licensing_resource_delete

The problem I have now, is A) can I just find that SP on another machine and add it back in and/or B) If I have to do a repair, does anyone know which solution or part thereof I might need to repair? Can I just do a reconfigure on a specific MSI rather than have to repair the entire solution?

Any help would be appreciated. I'll put in a support case too but this often gets me faster results.

A side note, we are at 7.1 SP2 with the latest release and roll-ups.

You can just find it from another system and usually run it in SQL Query Analyser to create it.

I got it. Since I didn't have a different system running, support got me the query and I'm back in business.


For anyone needing it:

create proc dbo.sp_Inv_Patch_Computers_Subject_For_Licensing_resource_delete
     nocount on
