I've been using WBEMTEST to find the values under SMS_CONFIGURATIONITEM

Select * from SMS_CONFIGURATIONITEM

This then shows a list of items like this:

SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=1
SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=2
SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=3
SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=4

I want to do this via VBScript, showing the data contained within each "SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=#"

Can you help?

Thank you!

I tried this, but it failed, saying "object doesn't support this property or method" regarding objItem.Name

Here is what I have thus far...


strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\sms\site_b02")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from SMS_ConfigurationItem")

For Each objItem In colItems
    Wscript.Echo "Name: " & objItem.Name
Next

Is there any namespace or WMI class called SMS_CONFIGURATIONITEM ??

As far as I know, there is an SMS_SCI_Configuration class, is that what you're after?

Or there is another one: SMS_SIIB_Configuration.

This is SMS 2007 and the featureset is DCM (desired configuration management). The SMS_CONFIGURATIONITEM is provided for WMI via SMS server and is actually the data that resides in the SMS DB "dbo.CI_LocalizedCategoryInstances" Table.

This question is the WMI equivalent of the SQL question you answered for me yesterday.
