Deleted managed computers reappear in Patch Manager

Updated May 23, 2018


When you open the Patch Manager Administrator Console and delete two or more managed computers, the computer reappears within 24 hours. The computers belong to a different domain and you deleted that domain from Managed Enterprise.


  • All Patch Manager versions


The scheduled managed computers inventory task causes the computers to reappear. The managed computer inventory tasks pull the computers from the domain or organizational unit (OU) you targeted using a computer selection rule while scheduling the Inventory task using the Inventory Scheduling Wizard.


Delete the Scheduled Managed computer inventory task for the domain and re-create the task. 

If the computers belong to an OU and you have only one domain or multiple domain inventory tasks, make sure the computers are deleted from the OU belonging to the targeted domain. 

Changing the Managed Computer Inventory task will not fix the issue.
