SCCM - deploy using AD groups that have machine names

Created a deployment application in SCCM and if I just create a deployment and ad some machine names it, it will deploy the software. However, I am trying to set it up so the helpdesk people only have to add a machine name into an AD group and the software will deploy
Running SCCM 2012. Configuration of deployment is as follows:

Administration – Discovery methods
      Active Directory Group Discovery
            Checked – enable active directory group discovery
            Scopes – domain/users – location – yes – Site Server
                  Polling schedule – enable delta – 5 mins
                  Options – checked – only discover computers that have logged in since 90 days
                        Checked – discover the membership of distribution groups
      Active Directory User Discovery
            Checked – Enable Active Directory User Discovery
            Path: LDAP://DC=domainname,DC=local
            Checked – Recursive search
            Polling schedule – checked – enable delta – set to 5 mins

Like I mentioned - the application does deploy if I create a deployment and just pick a few machines names, so I think the application part is OK, it is more likely in the device collection or some other system setting.

I did go to the client and went into control panel and Configuration Manager and manually ran all of the actions, then I let it bake overnight. Still nothing.

Have you created a dynamic collection based on a security group?

The method for creating one is detailed: https://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/sccm-2012-creating-device-collections.html

fcbcAuthor Commented:
I do, and it is documented above. The only difference in my query is I have

SMS_R_System.SystemGroupName
and your documentation uses:
SMS_R_System.SecurityGroupName

Not sure if that makes a difference. I will change it and give it a try.

That did not make a difference, count is still 0

Has AD system group discovery been configured for the correct OUs? I would manually run a discovery as well

If I create a collection manually and add the machine name in there, the deployment works.

Muhammad MullaCommented:
Yes. It should. The problem seems to be with your dynamic collection.
