Deploying Images with Agent and VSE for VDI and have ePO delete inactive systems?

Hi,

I have read up on how to deploy the Agent and VSE with an image by deleting the GUID and all that, I am following these guides https://community.mcafee.com/message/141144 , http://raj2796.wordpress.com/2011/02/01/deploying-vm-template-including-mcafee/ , http://mcafeetome.wordpress.com/2010/04/22/duplicate-agent-guids/

Now I want to deploy the Agent and VSE for my VMware VDI pools, the problem is that when a user logs off the desktop is deleted and refreshed with a new one. Every time this happens that desktop will remain in the system tree and a new one added. Is it possible to have the desktops that get deleted removed from the ePO system tree once it gets deleted? What is the best way to handle this?

I tested this out today and it seems that the GUUID's are still the same for the same hostname and IP address? is that normal behavior?

If i deploy 4 images, those 4 images check in with ePolicy, then when the desktop is deleted and a new one created they remain the same in ePolicy and new ones are not registered with ePolicy, like ePolicy tracks the ip/hostname i think?

I use a last communication query filter on the SYSTEM Tree that contrains VDIs where if last checking is greater than 4 hours(time up to you), then automated task to delete those systems out of the system tree.

The 4.8 Agent deployed in VDI mode appears to do this automaticly.
