sccm 2007 client type not advanced

600 machines out of 10,000 show client type NULL, while the rest show Advanced.  The versions are all the same, but some are apparently not Advanced type.  Interestingly, these non-advanced (NULL) machines also show up as non-client machines.  I can push advertisements to all 10,000 machines except the 600 non-Advanced client types.  I need explanation for Advanced vs not, why they show non-client, and why I can't push to them. probably not ready for a solution yet, just an understanding/description of what I'm seeing on this sccm2007 system I inherited when somebody quit. thanks.

If you are seeing 'no' in the client column for these computers, then these are discovery records for computers that are not currently active clients.  I.e. they could have been discovered by Active Directory discovery, but do not have the client installed on them.

perhaps.  interestingly, they show client version 4.00.6221.1000 in the version column.  If they do not have the client installed, why do they show this version installed? wouldn't client version = null?

Interesting .. they would not show a client version if they where just discovery records.

Other columns to look at are 'Obsolete'  and 'Decomissioned' (You will need to add Decomissioned, as it's not there by default).  To see if these records have been replaced or aged out.

What do these clients show for 'Client' and 'Client Type'?

good ideas.  Obsolete = blank (null).  I'll add Decommissioned to qry after this meeting, back in an hour or two. thanks.

oops, they now show no client version, so first answer was correct.
