SCCM Direct rule Collection list - how to remove a member

Recommended Posts

Created a small collection list of 1 devices for initial testing. Using a Direct rule if I rememer correctly. I'm new to SCCM2012 and finding my way. Testing was going fine. I tried to add 1 more device to the same test collection list, but by mistake included all other workstations. When I thought I was removing a device from my working test collection list I discovered it actually deleted the device from the complete list of all workstations as well as from my test collection list.

 

There is a right click option to remove from collection but it is always greyed out. I'm missing something obvious I assume. Could someone enlighten me?

 

Also there is a function to remove a collection list but with my experience with delete I'm concerned it will remove all my workstations from the database since I have them accidently in my test collection list? So the second question is how does the delete collection list work related to existence in other collection lists?

If Computers are added by Direct rule then they can be removed , but if they are added by a Query rule , it cannot be removed

You can't remove a system from a query based collection via the option Remove from collection. The reason for that is actually pretty simple, because the membership is determined on the query and not on manual actions.
