    Unmanaged systems

    bostjanc

      Greetings!

       

      --We have bounch of unmanaged systems and we would like to do some cleanup soo we would like to have all the system managed. Any quick steps how to do that.

       

      --In our system tree we have bounch of computers which were deleted in Active Directory but they still stays in EPO. Is there a way to do an automatic task which will clean thoose system, cause searching them manually in AD an EPO is tough. Also I would like to be careful when deleting systems, cause some servers has different access protection policies set, and I would not like to delete those systems and re-add them.

          1. You can simply select/check the unmanaged systems and select actions and deploy agent.

          2. There are two option to manage this

               i. Active directory Synchronization

               ii. Inactive Agent tasks

            Ok... For now ... I did this...

             

            System tree.... Choosen our group... group details... synchronization type... edit

             

            Synchronization type:
            Synchronize:
            Systems that exist elsewhere in the System Tree:

             

             

            Then I have went to server task and ran sync ad task...

             

            L8r I have selected all the systems.... Action ... deploy agent... and selected: Install only on systems that do not already have an agent managed by this epo server.

             

            Problems:

            If I click system tree...my organization ... our group... there still exists bunch of unmanaged systems

            Under my organization I have Lost&found group ... how do I move thoose pcs to right positions in our group?

              first of all, was the deployment successfull? check this in server task. For a successfull agent deployment on unmanaged systes you should provide credentials with admin privilages on the target machines and defaul share admin$, c$ should be enabled. otherwise the task will fail.

               

              You can achieve grouping by Tagging feature, Define Tags based on the object criteria like, Domain names, Machines names (if you have a defined naming convention based on location/group), then in the groups define which machine with specific tags should fall under this group.
