Good Morning Guys / Niall - I need help with an important issue, please. Our domain currently has numerous AD Groups for both devices and users. Our SCCM environment (2012 R2 SP1 CU3) has discovery set to add all of them and the default user collection "All User Groups" has 6,396 members from which I may search and locate individual groups. However - when adding a query to add a user group to a User Collection (or group with systems to a Device collection); none of the members are added to the collection. Below is the statement used which I typed in to directly specify the group: select SMS_R_USER.ResourceID,SMS_R_USER.ResourceType,SMS_R_USER.Name,SMS_R_USER.UniqueUserName,SMS_R_USER.WindowsNTDomain from SMS_R_User where SMS_R_User.UserGroupName = "company\\ABQ-Techs" If I choose to build the query via wizard, choose User Resource, User Group Name, then click Value (which should list all User Groups), only about 10 are listed - perhaps less than a percent of the ones we have. The same applies to Device Collections as when I try to create a query to include devices in a collection and click Value after setting "Security Group Name" or "System Group Name", I get just a handful of items to pick from. I found that this post describes the exact same issue, but there's no resolution listed despite many seemingly having the issue. All discovery properties are basically at defaults and logs don't seem to show any errors. I just ran a full discovery then edited a copy of the log to include only events during the process plus change sensitive info which is attached. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Hi all, Probably quite a noob question here, I have created applications in SCCM 2012 and added them to my deployment task sequence and they install nicely. I’m new to SCCM and thinking there must be a way of building generic packages of applications that I have overlooked. Ideally I’d like to be able to collate a group of apps in one package/task/group, so that I can just select that group when deploying an OS and get all the apps I’m wanting? For example, I’d like to make a group called “LAB Applications” that contains all my generic apps and then I could add that to my deploy Windows 7 task…. can someone point me in the right direction? Cheers!
Hey guys, After setting up a new domain and deploying SCCM 2012 I came to realize how much work it actually is to set up new applications. I have made a script which creates AD groups and Collections. I still create the Applications manually because they usually differ when it comes to how they need to be set up. Some products can be imported as Applications (MSI etc) while some (Autodesk products in particular) need to be set up as Packages. Here's a link to the script. http://heineborn.com/tech/powershell-create-collections-and-ad-groups/ Enjoy!
Hello I'm having a problem with my patch management colletion queries. We want to make sure that we do not include manually patched servers in our SCCM patch management, and want to control this through a Exclusion group in AD. I'm having a hard time getting the correct results though. I want to include servers in Group A, and I want to remove servers that is included in Group B. The point is to remove servers that is in both groups. As a kind of fail safe. I've gotten this far: select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemGroupName like "Domain\\G_Patch_server_Pilot" and SMS_R_System.ResourceId not in (select ResourceID from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemGroupName = "Domain\\G_Patch_server_Exclusions") This gives me the servers in G_Patch_server_Pilot group from the correct domain, but it does not honor the Exclusion groups that is not supposed to be added to the query. If I do the same query with OU's, I get the desired result: select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemOUName like "Domain.com/Machines/Servers" and SMS_R_System.ResourceId not in (select ResourceID from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemOUName = "Domain.com/Machines/Servers/Database") This query will exclude the sub OU called Databases. We can not however, base this on OU's as there is different types of servers that need to be excluded. What am I doing wrong here?
