If you are looking for a SCCM device collection to group all domain controllers in your setup, you are at right place. If you want to group all your domain controllers in one device collection, you can use a simple query.
Sometimes all you need a quick query to create device collections in Configuration Manager. SCCM comes with built-in collections however you may need to create collections based on requirements.
First of all to manage domain controllers using SCCM, you must first install the ConfigMgr client agents on domain controllers. By default the client push excludes the option to install agents on domain controllers.
If you notice Target machine is a DC Not processing this CCR while client push, you may refer the following post – https://www.prajwal.org/target-machine-is-a-dc-not-processing-this-ccr/.
SCCM Domain Controllers Collection
Let’s create a device collection in SCCM that groups all your domain controllers present in the setup. Open the Configuration Manager console and click Assets and Compliance > Device Collections.
Right click Device collections and click Create Device Collection. On the Create Device Collection wizard, specify the collection name. Click Next.
Specify the query name and click Edit Query Statement.
Paste the below query and click OK.
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 INNER JOIN SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM ON SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId WHERE SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Roles LIKE "%Domain_Controller%"
Click Next on Summary page and finally on Completion window, click Close.
The query runs and gathers all the computers that have got system roles as domain controllers. Since I have just 1 domain controller in my setup, the member count is 1.
In addition to the above query, you can also use the below query to collect all domain controllers in your organization.
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.PrimaryGroupID = "516"
