New SCCM Maintenance Task "Clean up Deployment Status Messages older than x days"
Install Status Messages of TaskSequences or Applications still exist how long as the associated deployment exists.
In a big SCCM environment (>150.000) with a static deployment construct. (one catalog object, one software, one collection, one deployment) Status Messages are the cause for a strong increase of the database size.
In spite of using Status Filter Rules in the SCCM hierarchy.
For the order workflow, or for troubleshooting only status message were required up to 30 days.
So a hopefully simple Maintenance Task can save a lot of Hard disc space.

We talk about the Table "TaskExecutionStatus"! There ist no Maintenance Task which handles this Table.
