SCCM Membership Rules for Collections


We have Microsoft System Center 2007.  We are trying to update a few Collections based on OU in Active Directory.  However we are unable to get it query any OU successfully.  In essence we are using the 'System Resource' Attribute Class and the 'System OU Name' Attribute.  For the value I have tried everything from the OU name, to the canonical name.  No matter how I try to update the Collection by OU it does not update.  I am however able to update the Collection successfully by IP address, computer name etc.  

Any ideas?

I'm not in front of a ConfigMgr box right now to check, but I believe you can select 'System OU Name' then hit the 'Values' button to see the discovered OU names stored in the ConfigMgr database.

The format should be in the form: DOMAIN.LOCAL/PATH/TO/OU.

If nothing is listed when you press 'Values', then OU names probably are not being discovered. If that is the case, you need to look at System Group Discovery under 'Discovery Methods' in Site Management, and enable it on the appropriate OUs accordingly.

I didn't have anything under the Active Directory System Group Discovery, only the Active Directory System Discovery.  I added my OU I am trying to query in my test Collection to the Group Discovery.  You think once this is polled, I should see this OU when I hit the 'Values' button under Membership rules for the Collection?

Scratch that... I set my polling time to every 5 minutes and sure enough those computers pulled into the collection.  Thanks for the help Tigermatt.
