hi,

am new to SCCM 07. Have installed this on a 2008 server box and it is up and running but am unable to add a computer (Windows 7 professional) to a collection site. I followed these steps

1.Open the System Centre  Configuration Manager console.
2.Expand ‘Computer Management’
3.Right click on on the collection group . (e.g ‘Workstations – Testing Group’) and select ‘Properties’
4.Select the ‘Membership Rules’ tab and click on the computer icon.
5.Click on ‘Next’
6.Under ‘Resource class’ select ‘System Resource’
7.Under ‘Attribute name’ select ‘Name’
8.Enter the name of the workstation to be added, e.g. COMPUTERNAME
9.Click on ‘Next’, and ‘Next’ again
10.Click on ‘Select All’ and then ‘Finish’
11.Click on ‘OK’ to save the changes.

however at step 10 - I do not see the computer name

Am I missing a step ? have tried adding the computer by MAC/IP address but it still doesn't show.

thanks!

Ensure you have the SCCM client installed on the machine you are trying to add to the collection. It sounds like the machine is not being detected by SCCM since there are no results when you complete a search by name, IP, etc. Check for the process CCMExec.exe, which should be running on the client if the SCCM client is installed.

did a litle digging around and i needed to adjust the query that the collection pool was running so that it detected system reosurces/names rather than system resources/ip network
