Creating Device Collections

5/4/2012

This section provides information that will help you set up membership queries, which create collections that are similar to Device Manager 2011 device collections. The information in this section is needed only if you have turned off device collections. For more information on turning off device collections, see Turning Off Device Collections. For more information about device collections, see Device Collections.

Use the instructions in How to Create a Collection in Configuration Manager Help to create a query-based collection. To create a collection based on device type, copy and paste the following code into the New Collection Wizard:

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_EDM_DEVICEINFORMATION on 
SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_G_SYSTEM_EDM_DEVICEINFORMATION.ResourceID Where 
SMS_G_SYSTEM_EDM_DEVICEINFORMATION.DeviceType = devicetypevalue

The following table provides the device type values for the SMS_G_SYSTEM_EDM_DEVICEINFORMATION.DeviceType attribute.
