SCCM Device Collection based on IP Address


I need to use SCCM to push out an application package only to computers that are based at a particular site.

IP address should be the best way to do this, and I have created a query (see attached screenshot), but it is picking up some systems that have multiple IP addresses.  e.g. a computer that has been at the site and gets a 172.26.201.x address but also another site 172.26.202.x

Have I setup the query correctly?  Also, will this collection auto update?  I.e if a computer comes into the site from elsewhere, and gets the correct IP address, how long for the collection to update and push the package?

Thanks in advance

Perhaps use a security group/OU. This is manual but will work even with multiple addresses.
The Clients normally keep their IP for at least a week (if Default DHCP assigned).
As far as i know the IP Information Comes with the heartbeat discovery cycle which by default is once a week also.
Soif you limit the update Intervall of the collection to a few hours, or days or should be good to go.
The query Looks not bad, but you could aso use the Subnet Paramter so you can query for '172.26.201'
