In Sce 2010 on the computers tab ,the description doesnt get filled in from AD. Instead it takes that information from the actual computer which we havent filled in. Is there a way to get SCE 2010 to take the computer description information from AD and not the actual computer?
 Thanks

The SCE is relaying on the agent installed on the machine so it will use the local information and not the AD information when displaying.
