I have currently setup a very basic job to wipe device HDD's that come back to us that are out of lease or need to be redeployed within the network using copywipew:
Created a winpe prov template:
Maps a drive to the copywipew folder
Executes copywipew.exe wipe 0 QUICK sr
Device is wiped once booted, which is very handy for us because it means when the machines are returned to us they do not need to come up from the warehouse, they simply let us know machine xyz is back and so long as we know its ok to go its wiped.
My question is though, within landesk is their an archive type function for old devices? I will no longer be using the device so i do not wish for it to be consuming a licence, but for tracking purposes i would like to keep its data available. If that is not possible, is their a way to automatically remove the device from the landesk database? So on completion of the wipe i can be sent a notification explaining machine xyz has been successfully wiped, and has been removed (archived?) from the landesk database?
Im just trying to make sure my ld database doesnt get to disjointed from the count of live machines we actually have within the environment as we turn over devices weekly.
