Same computer names more than one time in the ePO

In our environment it can happen that a Windows computer name changes. Than I have two entries in the ePO the new computer name which has a newer last communication date and the old which has an older last communication date.

How can I delete such multiple entries.

I use ePO 5.3.2 and 5.3.1

Create a query (name SysDup), Mananged Systems, under filter/System Name: Is duplicated and Last Communication: Is not within the last 3 days (or whatever). Save/Run and confirm results.

If results are good, create server task, under actions: run query, choose the Sysdup with sub-action delete systems and a schedule of your choosing (hourly, daily, weekly ...)
