SCCM 2007 - Collection of PCs at International Location with No-ConfigMgr Client

We currently have a remote site in England that has PCs and Servers.  These PCs and Servers have their own AD OU container off of our main domain name (ie. Corp> London> Servers)

Is there a collection query rule available that will produce a collection with only London's PCs (laptops and servers) that do not have a ConfigMgr client?

Any assistance would be very helpful.

You should be able to do this but I might need some more information to help filter it down.

Basically to find all of your non client machines you can create a collection with the following characteristics

1
From there if you know there will be an IP range, subnet address or something else you should be able to filter it down. Below is a collection i created for all non-server non-clients

This info is great!  Thank you very much for the quick reply and assistance!

I know the ip subnets of the London Location, how could I get those into the collection query?

Actually I think i may have lied to you, I dont think you will be able to filter on IP until you get the client installed. Until then the following two queries may be helpful to you.

Filtering based off AD sites and services
3
Or filter based off OU structure

Joe - You did not lie to me, you got me on the right track!  I was able to filter on IP address by stating = where SMS_R_System.IPAddresses like "192.168.16.%"

Thank you for your quick reply and assistance!
