Syntax

Description

The Get-CMConflictingRecord cmdlet gets one or more conflicting Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager record objects.

When Configuration Manager recognizes a new client, it uses hardware information to check whether it previously created a record for that computer. For example, you might have reinstalled the operating system. The previous client record still exists with the same hardware information. If you manually resolve conflicts, you have the option to merge the new record with the existing record, create a new record, or create a record as a blocked record. You can also configure Configuration Manager to resolve conflicts automatically.

You can use this cmdlet with the Block-CMConflictingRecord cmdlet or the Merge-CMConflictingRecord cmdlet. You can get all the outstanding conflicts for Configuration Manager or specify a conflict by name or by ID.

Examples

Example 1: Get all conflicting records

PS C:\> Get-CMConflictingRecord

Example 2: Get a named conflicting record

PS C:\> Get-CMConflictingRecord -Name "CR07"

This command gets a conflict named CR07.
