AD System Discovery - Skip the DNS Check Please!
Please add a check box which would enable me to have the DNS check skipped during computer system discovery. There are situations when a system may not resolve in DNS from the CM server, however I would still like to have the attribute data (LastLogon, pwdLastSet, etc) from Active Directory updated by the discovery process regardless of the DNS check. Currently these values are not updated if the system is not found.

If we own it, we should manage it. Regardless of whethor or not it is currently in DNS. If there are 10k computer objects in AD, it should discover 10k computer objects! This trips up admins all the time and makes them THINK they are managing all their devices, but actually they are not... When you use ConfigMgr for security updates and antimalware, this is a pretty big deal.
