Systems Management Question
Pro's & Con's to wiping a software catalog?
To start I will say that I inherited a KACE SMA last year and have worked very hard to get it into a working production powerhouse. I have removed hundreds of PCs and stale accounts and replaced with new hardware and a standard Enterprise image. Now that I have the backing of the managers I will be removing all local admin permissions. With this move I would like to essentially "clean" all history of software and let KACE rebuild the catalog before I start the real software cleanup and blocking.
So my question for the more advanced KACE admins, what are the cons of this decision?
Note: I don't care about what we had installed, I only care about what we have now. If KACE will just rebuild the catalog on the next inventory, What am I really losing?
Thank you in advance.
