Delete Older Not Reported Stale Computers

Is it possible to configure WSUS to delete older computers which are not reported in WSUS for quite a time?


To clean up the old computer objects, use CleanStaleComputers from Windows Server Update Services API Samples and Tools.


CleanStaleComputers: This sample application removes computers from the Update Services
server that have not
contacted the server in a specified number of days.


USAGE:


CLEANSTALECOMPUTERS /DAYS:[1-365] /DELETE:{YES | NO} /PROMPT:{YES | NO}


/DAYS. Days since the computer contacted the server
/DELETE. Delete from the Update Services server or move to the Stale
computers group
/PROMPT. Prompt before moving/deleting computers 


WSUS Product Team has heard this request and the capability to clean old stale computers is under consideration for the next version along with the ability to clean up old/superseded updates from the tool.
