SCCM/MEM - Check when device was discovered for the first time (migration)

Hi,

Is there any valid method of checking the date, when any systems were discovered by SCCM?

We are during migration and this would be helpful, to get the date when desktops and laptops were discovered by our new infrastructure.

Thank you

Checking the creation date of the resource will give you this. This is visible in the console on the properties of each resource, in WMI in SMS_R_System, and in SQL in v_R_System.

Wow, thank you. I always thought it is the date when system was built, not when it was discovered by SCCM, great to know

These views (all of the same data) are exclusively for information collected by one of the discovery methods. The date the OS was installed is not collected by any discovery method and creation date within data almost always refers to the time the record in the DB was created which in this case, equates to when the resource was created which is when the first DDR was submitted for it by any of the discovery methods.
