SCCM Collection Queries


We have been building a number of collections within SCCM lately so we thought we would start to build up a reference here of various collections, some simple, some more complex. We will be adding to this when we can so make sure you come back and check for updates.

Computers with certain prefixes – % being a wildcard

select SMS_R_System.NetbiosName from
 SMS_R_System.NetbiosName = "ABC%"

Adobe Reader XI Installations – from Programs in Control Panel

select SMS_R_System.NetbiosName,  
 SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName from  
 SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS on  
 SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.ResourceId =  
 SMS_R_System.ResourceId where  
 SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName like “Adobe Reader XI”

Devices based on OU

select distinct * from SMS_R_System
 SMS_R_System.SystemOUName = "OU NAME"

Windows 8 Installations

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,  
 SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System
