Query to discover objects in AD from a SCCM Collection

Hi,

When you generate a collection in SCCM and want that appear all objects that are in a AD Sub OU you can use the following query:

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemOUName = “DOMAIN/SERVERS_OU/SUB_OU”

In a customer I had to set up a kms server to license servers from various domains.

These is the configuration that I used:

  1. On the KMS Server edit the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform. there edit the DnsDomainPublishList value and put all the domains dns suffix.
  2. Go to the DNS server of these domains and create a new SRV Record and type the following information:
  • Service: _VLMCS
  • Protocol: _TCP
  • Port number: 1688
  • Host offering the service:<FQDN_of_KMS_Host>
