Duplicate deployed computer config items
sccm creates frequently new hadware-id for computer items, that implies new "Microsoft.SystemCenter.ConfigurationManager.DeployedComputer" in scsm after sync. The new config items are more then less a duplicate of the old ones except the hardware-id. Does anyone made same experience, and how u solve that issue?
I read out that the hardware ID is a unique ID generated based upon the hardware components of a system. The exact algorithm used to generate the ID is not publicly documented or disclosed. Generally, it will change if some hardware component of the system is changed -- because the algorithm is not known, it's impossible to say what exactly will cause the ID to change so you just have to assume that any hardware change will cause it.
