The AD task in ePO36 is not very reliable. The have done a great step in ePO 40 in this case, so the best would be to upgrade your server if possible.
I was hoping to get a reply from you. Based on your posts, you're a wealth of information.
I'm downloading 4.0 and getting approval for the upgrade, but in the interest of having a better understanding of what I'm doing, what other method could\should be used to properly pickup new machines and manage them? I currently get a lot of Lost & Founds, but still not enough to equal the amount of PC's we have in AD.
Picking up new machines can be done in the following ways:
1) Manual pusk installation from the epo console
2) AD sync task
3) Login script
4) software deployment
Depending on your situation it could be that e.g. software deployment is simpler and more reliable than an AD sync task.
To sort them into the right epo group you can configure sorting by ipaddress and/or tags.
