Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

There are two ways to modify an existing collection in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007.

Collection properties (attributes that reflect a collection's content) are modified through the <Collection Name> Properties dialog box. Attributes that can be modified there include the following:

  • General collection information

  • Membership rules

  • Advertisements to the collection

  • Security rights

Collection settings (attributes that reflect a collection's behavior) are modified through the <Collection Name> Settings dialog box. Attributes that can be modified there include the following:

  • Maintenance windows

  • Collection-specific variables

  • Collection-specific restart and policy polling settings

noteNote
To modify the properties of a specific collection, you must have Modify permission for the Collections security object type. To modify the settings of a collection, you must have Modify Settings permission for the Collection security object type. For more information about security permissions, see Classes and Instances for Object Security in Configuration Manager.
