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

Collection views contain information about the collections, collection rules, and collection members. Many of the collection views are useful when creating reports on system data, software update deployments, software distribution advertisements, and desired configuration management configuration items.

Following are the two types of collection views:

  • The first type lists all members of a specific collection and starts with the v_CM_RES_COLL_ view name and ends with the collection ID, with the exception of the v_FullCollectionMembership view, which lists all members of all collections. This collection type will be used most often when creating reports.

  • The second type of collection view has a name that starts with v_ and contains general information about the collections but not the member resources within each collection.

The collection views are described in the following table.

 

Collection View Description

v_ClientCollectionMembers

Lists all system resources, by resource ID, that are not in an obsolete or decommissioned state, what collections the system resource is a member of, and whether the resource is a Configuration Manager client.

The view can be joined to other views by using the CollectionID and ResourceID columns.

v_CM_RES_COLL_<CollectionID>

Lists all client computers that are members of the collection. The machine ID, name, client GUID, site code, whether the computer is assigned to a site, whether the computer has been approved, whether the computer is an active client, and so on.

The view can be joined to other views by using the ResourceID column.
