Good Morning,

I'm trying to find out the next steps to get computer information from the SCCM database. I have the steps to make the connection then grab the computer but can't seem to figure out how to get the computer attributes. Please help. Here's my code below.

        Dim strComputer = "ComputerConnectingto"
        Dim strSMSServer = "SCCMServer"
        Dim strSMSSiteCode = "SITECODE"
        Dim strUserName = "username"
        Dim strPassword = "password"
        Dim TSystem

        Try

            Dim lLocator = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
            Dim gService = lLocator.ConnectServer(strSMSServer, "root\sms\site_" & strSMSSiteCode, strUserName, strPassword)
            TSystem = gService.ExecQuery("SELECT * from SMS_R_System where NetbiosName = '" & strComputer & "'")


        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Could not connect to SCCM Server - ErrorDescription:" & Err.Description)
            End

        End Try

There's a complete WMI object for that. Check the MSDN.

There are few code examples in the sub articles. Doesn't seems so hard.

Here's what I have.. Its not displaying the system information.. It's just showing {0}

        Dim options As ConnectionOptions
        options = New ConnectionOptions()
        options.Username = "domain\username"
        options.Password = "password"

        Dim scope As ManagementScope
        scope = New ManagementScope("\\Computername\root\cimv2", options)
        scope.Connect()

        ' Query system for Operating System information
        Dim query As ObjectQuery
        query = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem")
        Dim searcher As ManagementObjectSearcher
        searcher = New ManagementObjectSearcher(scope, query)

        Dim queryCollection As ManagementObjectCollection
        queryCollection = searcher.Get()

        Dim m As ManagementObject
        For Each m In queryCollection
            ' Display the remote computer information
            MessageBox.Show("Windows Directory : {0}", m("WindowsDirectory"))
            MessageBox.Show("Operating System: {0}", m("Caption"))
            MessageBox.Show("Version: {0}", m("Version"))
            MessageBox.Show("Manufacturer : {0}", m("Manufacturer"))
        Next

        Return

I think the line:
query = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem")

should be:
query = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM SMS_Client")

I found what i was looking for.

        Dim scope As ManagementScope
        scope = New ManagementScope("\\" & SelectedSystem.Text & "\ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK")

        Try
            scope.Connect()

            'Gets the WMI Value
            Dim query As ObjectQuery
            query = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM CCM_ClientAgentSettings")
            Dim searcher As ManagementObjectSearcher
            searcher = New ManagementObjectSearcher(scope, query)

            Dim queryCollection As ManagementObjectCollection
            queryCollection = searcher.Get()

            Dim m As ManagementObject
            For Each m In queryCollection
                If (m("BrandingTitle")) = "Tony's Network Services" Then
                    ClientInstalled.Text = "Client Installed"
                    ClientInstalled.BackColor = Color.Green
                Else
                    ClientInstalled.Text = "Client NOT Installed"
                    ClientInstalled.BackColor = Color.Red
                End If
            Next

            Return
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("System is Offline - Can't Detect SCCM Client")
            ClientInstalled.Text = "System Offline"
