Running 1610, I stumbled across something yesterday, and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this: changing just the name of a query used to populate a collection breaks the collection. Steps to replicate: Change the name of the query being used as a membership rule for a collection. Collection's icon gets an hourglass, even though nothing about its membership actually changed. Hourglass doesn't go away, and collection membership no longer updates. The first time I saw this was with a query-based collection looking for %server% in operatingSystemNameAndVersion. Even after adding new devices to the environment and waiting overnight, those devices didn't get pulled into the collection this morning, even though delta was enabled so they should've been picked up within minutes. "Fixed" it by deleting and re-creating the collection. I have another, separate 1610 environment I work with regularly, so I jumped over to that one and created a new query-based collection to test with, looking for %string% in the system's name. Changed the name of the query, and sure enough, the collection's hourglass refused to go away (only left this one for 15 minutes, not overnight). Changing the actual query to %string2% seems to have gotten the collection working again, though obviously isn't really a fix, since string and string2 are different; just need to change back to the original string. Back to the initial environment, with a collection looking for system name ending with a number and a specific service existing and being set to auto-start: change the name of the query, and the hourglass has been stuck for 30 minutes. Changing the query in some non-meaningful way (adding a second space character after an "and") doesn't help. Changing the query in a meaningful way (look for a different service name) gets the collection working again. So it doesn't seem to matter what the query is looking for - three queries looking for three different things (though second and third are similar) and all of them break the collection if just the query name is change without changing the query itself.
WQL query where reg key is not present
epoch71 posted a topic in Configuration Manager 2012Hi Our hardware inventory is extended to capture some registry values that contain company specific tags. However, on one of our images a value was missed (not present). I need to create a collection containing these machines, but I’m struggling to work out how to do this in WQL. Is it actually possible to use WQL to check if something does not exist (as opposed to being NULL)? Our environment is SCCM 2012 SP1 CU3. Thanks in advance.
Query Newly joined computers
TrialandError posted a topic in Configuration Manager 2012I am looking for a query that finds all computers joined to the domain since XX date. I tried using the query below which looks back over the last week for new computers but this also discovers any computers that have been modified in the last 7 days. Does anyone have a query that is based on date created? select SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.CreationDate FROM SMS_R_System WHERE DateDiff(dd,SMS_R_System.CreationDate, GetDate ()) <= 7
Finding Installed Updates
ntatschner posted a topic in Configuration Manager 2012Hi all, I'm looking for a way to collect and query on installed updates with SCCM 2012 SP1. I've tried using Win32_quickfixengineering but for for some reason not getting anything back. Any tips to achieve this? Thanks in advance. Nigel
Hello. I'm having trouble making up a query for software metering. The query was adopted from some site and then modified to suit my purposes. I am however having problems adding a simple where-clause to this query. The query is as follows: Select SMS_R_System.ResourceID,SMS_R_System.Name,SMS_R_User.UniqueUserName FROM SMS_R_System JOIN SMS_UserMachineRelationship ON SMS_R_System.Name=SMS_UserMachineRelationship.MachineResourceName JOIN SMS_R_User ON SMS_UserMachineRelationship.UniqueUserName=SMS_R_User.UniqueUserName INNER JOIN SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile ON SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceID INNER JOIN SMS_MeteredFiles ON SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileID = SMS_MeteredFiles.MeteredFileID INNER JOIN SMS_MeteredProductRule ON SMS_MeteredProductRule.RuleID = SMS_MeteredFiles.RuleID WHERE SMS_MeteredFiles.RuleID = 16777317 AND DateDiff(day, SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.ModifiedDate, GetDate()) > 1 AND DateDiff(day, SMS_MeteredProductRule.LastUpdateTime, GetDate()) > 1 AND SMS_R_system.OperatingSystemNameAndVersion LIKE '%Workstation%' AND SMS_G_system_SoftwareFile.ResourceID NOT IN (SELECT DISTINCT SMS_MonthlyUsageSummary.ResourceID FROM SMS_MonthlyUsageSummary INNER JOIN SMS_MeteredFiles ON SMS_MonthlyUsageSummary.FileID = SMS_MeteredFile.MeteredFileID WHERE DateDiff(day, SMS_MonthlyUsageSummary.LastUsage, GetDate()) < 2 AND SMS_MeteredFiles.RuleID = 16777317) This works fine for the purpose, but I want to incorporate device affinity along with it. And to do that, I want to add 'WHERE SMS_UserMachineRelationship.RelationActive = '1'' somewhere but I don't know where. All my guesses have resulted in invalid query. This is for user collection. This was relatively easy to do for device deployments but I'm having hard time getting it to work for when a deployment is for user - and this is essential because the install deployment collection membership must first be deleted before the uninstall can be done.
Users using multiple computersHi there, WQL and SQL totally escapes me so I was wondering if someone could help. I'm after creating a report that will show users that have logged on to multiple machines and also list these machines... My Project manager asked spcifically for a report that displays users that have (in their possession) both a desktop and a laptop but I'm guessing my method would be easier. I believe you can also report on the primary user depending on the % of time a user has been logged on to a machine - maybe this could help narrow the results down further?? Hope someone can help - or at least understand my request ) Chris.
