Assigning your users to their primary machines in SCCM is a common task. It permits to identify the primary machine of a specific user and opens the possibility to install software only on primary machines. Once your associations are created, there are multiple ways to see the associations. This blog post will detail the various way to identify your user and primary machines and we also provide a free SCCM primary device report that you could use to easily find an association.
