How to Automatically Update Active Assets

We have been providing a customer with continuous scanner (via a virtual scanner) on a monthly basis and they recently decommissioned some 2003 servers that are still showing up in their automated reports.

I believe the reason these old servers are still showing up is because the automated reports are host-based, and therefore pull the data it reports on from the associated asset group(s). My question is if there is an automated way to purge/update these old hosts without having to manually go in and purge individual assets as I am informed.

Would a discovery scan do this without purging old data on hosts that are still active in the environment? Just trying to look for answers.
