Desktop Analytics devices

New Contributor

In a large environment (100k devices), when connecting desktop analytics with configmgr, is the target collection supposed to be a portion (less than 20%) of the environment? Asking because when you do, you get a warning about the global pilot not being over 20% of the total devices.  So, is desktop analytics supposed to be used for only a fraction of the environment??  My thoughts were that you add the entire fleet and you also add child collections of the target collection and use those (or a group of those) as your deployment plans... (which include the Pilot phase btw).

The idea IS that you do what you described where the target collection includes your entire fleet, then sub-collections can be used for deployment plans. 


I think the issue here is just confusing wording on the error unfortunately. DA is throwing this error because it thinks that your pilot group is not representative due to under-representation.
