We recently had a company come in to deploy office 2007 via SCCM (essentially to install and setup SCCM, then to install office 2007 across the domain) . They build a collection which is several layers deep which is qualified by dhcp ranges.etc, but more importantly if it has office 2003, it will install office 2007. The picture attached will provide a better idea of the collection depth. The clients update every hour to the server and the server does a discovery for new PCs once every day. we have approx 1100 pcs in the trust.

Would this be an accurate assessment when someone says it will take a few days ...

 

What we are seeing after looking at reports the software is being installed and successful , but the collections are still the same number. In theory based on the sql query which is applied to the collection , the PC should drop out of the collections after office is installed.

The company are saying it will take a few days for the collections to update which seems quite strange. The clients speak to the server on the hour and the server does a discovery at least once a day.

Open up the properties sheet for one of the collections and go to the Membership Rules tab.  On the bottom is the "Update this collection on a schedule" area.  The SCCM default is "every one day" from the collection creation date/time.

Now, your query is probably built using information from the client's Hardware Inventory.  What is the cycle for Hardware Inventory?  (Site\Site Settings\Client Agents\Hardware Inventory Client Agent Properties)

Once a machine has had the new Office installed, you're waiting for the inventory to run and THEN for the collection to update.  After these two things happen, the queries used to build the collections should no longer find the machine's that have been upgraded.
