MSCCM 2007, trying to create a new collection but cannot...

Recommended Posts

I have MSCCM 2007 installed on server 2003 R2 stnd.

It is installed in mixed mode. I have full domain admin rights on my domain (which is the installation target of MSCCM). I do not have Enterprise rights.

 

Ultimatly I'm trying to create a collection that contains xp workstation from computers put into an AD group. However, I cannot see any way to do this.

 

In fact when I do create a new collection and attempt to enter Membership rules, they don't appear to take. I get no errors or hints of mistakes that give meaningful information. The possible options given are not clear to me (as they don't seem to directly refer to groups etc.)

 

I'm guessing, I missunderstand a concept. Can some one help?

Thanks for your reply. Yes what you have suggested would work, but I would like to use AD. As an example, make a new AD group called "MY_Test_Computers". Then add all the computer accounts to this AD group that you want for testing.

Then in SCCM select the "MY_Test_Computers" AD group and tell SCCM to make a collection based on this AD group.

 

Is that possible?

you can of course link collections to AD Security Groups

for example by using queries

 

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 = "w2k8\\Microsoft Office 2007"

 

or even link to AD Organisational units

 

Query for a single organizational unit:

 

select * from SMS_R_System where SystemOUName = "ABC1.ABC.YOURDOMAIN.COM/ OUNAME / OUNAME / OUNAME /WORKSTATIONS/STANDARD"

 

Query for multiple organizational units:

 

select * from SMS_R_System where SystemOUName in ( "ABC1.ABC. YOURDOMAIN.COM/OUNAME/OUNAME/OUNAME/OUNAME/WORKSTATIONS", "XX.XX. YOURDOMAIN.COM/NAME/OUNAME/OUNAME/WORKSTATIONS" )

 

Query for a single Active Directory Site:

 

select * from SMS_R_System where ADSiteName = "Default-First-Site-Name"

 

Query for a multiple Active Directory Sites:

 

select * from SMS_R_System where ADSiteName in ( "Default-First-Site-Name", "Site-XXX" )

 

you can see how to change rules for collections in this post

 

cheers
