Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.
There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased to 200MB (for now), this will stop this issue and allow the computers to only send delata after the full inventory.
Starting with 2002 we increased the size limit from 50MB to 100MB which should provide more breathing room here.
That being said, we understand the desire to allow for larger or more flexible data limits and this is something we can consider for future releases.
This is a struggle on every SCCM instance I've dealt with. 50mb is not large enough. We inevetibly get systems that have larger MIF's and then the components go to critical state as the errors build up. The systems keep transmitting the large MIF's and as stated that consumes bandwidth. This needs to be resolved.
This is an issue on high use Shared PC's because of UWP Apps in Windows 10.
