We have had a report that one of our WQL queries has not been working correctly, this is the one for devices that have Configuration Manager client installed but do not have System Center Endpoint Protection installed on them.
The original post is here:
So, we have looked into this and found the fault, we have now updated the original post, but in case you want quick access to it, below is the updated and confirmed working WQL query.
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 inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Name in (select distinct SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Name from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId 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 = "System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection" ) and SMS_R_System.Client = 1
This query can now be used to create a collection then you can deploy System Center Endpoint Protection to this collection to ensure all devices within the collection then get Endpoint installed.
To find out how to add System Center Endpoint Protection as an application to your Configuration Manager so that you can deploy it to a collection, then please see the post below:
