In SCCM 2007 R3, I have created a collection structure matching our Active Directory structure so I can deploy software, updates etc. by department.
To make it manageable, I need to have the collections set up with membership rules querying the discovered computer object's OU location to match it up with the correct collection.
I used the following guide to set it up the way I wanted:
The only change I made is to the "Operator" field in Criterion Properties, I set it to "is equal to", although I also tested "lowercase is like" with no difference.
The computer objects are discovered without any issue as far as I can tell as I am able to manually add them to a test collection, and client push installation works automatically.
Problem is, the query is not working.. the discovered computers are not being pulled into the appropriate collection.
The only method of troubleshooting I could come up with was to go to the collection I had set up the query on and click Add Resources, search All Collections and go to Advanced, then select Attribute name: "Sustem OU Name" (which is the same attribute as the query I set up) then searched by any part of the OU path, and nothing comes up which leads me to believe the information isn't being pulled in when the object is disovered.
This leads me to wonder if there are any attributes that need to be added to the "Active Directory attribute" tab in Active Directory System Discovery Properties? I couldn't seem to find an answer on this anywhere.
I would really appreciate any tips which might lead me to a solution or at least a way to troubleshoot why this working.
