Delete computers from a group

If you use role-based administration, you must have the Computer search, protection and groups right to perform this task. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

You can delete computers from a group, for example, if you want to remove entries for computers that are no longer on the network.

Important: If you delete computers that are still on the network, they will no longer be listed or managed by the console.

If you’ve upgraded from an earlier version of Enterprise Console and have computers that are encrypted with legacy Enterprise Console–managed full disk encryption, do not delete these computers from the console. Encryption recovery may not be possible in this case.

To delete computers:

  1. Select the computers that you want to delete.
  2. Right-click and select Delete.

If you want to see the computers again, click the Discover computers icon on the toolbar. These computers will not be shown as managed until they are restarted.
