SCCM Duplicate System Entries in the Console

If your SCCM console has duplicated System entries in the Console, and you want to find it right? Below is the Query for this issue.


select R.ResourceID,R.ResourceType,R.Name,R.SMSUniqueIdentifier,R.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,R.Client from SMS_R_System as r full join SMS_R_System as s1 on s1.ResourceId = r.ResourceId full join SMS_R_System as s2 on s2.Name = s1.Name where s1.Name = s2.Name and s1.ResourceId != s2.ResourceId

I love this Query, especially.


SMS/SCCM Command-line Actions - alternate to right click tools ?

SMS/SCCM Command-line Actions

We can use WMIC tool to run on remote computers and get the client actions as we want

Some examples to trigger SMS/SCCM Client Actions from command line:

Disable Software-Distribution:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm\policy\machine\requestedconfig path ccm_SoftwareDistributionClientConfig  CREATE ComponentName="Disable SWDist",Enabled="false",LockSettings="TRUE",PolicySource="local",PolicyVersion="1.0" ,SiteSettingsKey="1" /NOINTERACTIVE

Re-Activate Software-Distribution:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm\policy\machine\requestedconfig path ccm_SoftwareDistributionClientConfig  WHERE ComponentName="Disable SWDist" delete /NOINTERACTIVE

Trigger Hardware Inventory:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}" /NOINTERACTIVE

Trigger Software Inventory:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000002}" /NOINTERACTIVE

Trigger DataDiscoverRecord (DDR) update:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000003}" /NOINTERACTIVE

Force a FULL HW Inventory on next HW-Inv Schedule:
WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm\invagt path inventoryActionStatus where InventoryActionID="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}" DELETE /NOINTERACTIVE

Repair SMS/SCCM Agent on a remote client:
WMIC /node:%MACHINE% /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL RepairClient

Repair a list (all clients listed in clients.txt) of remote SMS/SCCM Agents:
WMIC /node:@clients.txt /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL RepairClient

SCCM 2007 Right Click Tools latest version available, one can download from the below link

SCCM 2007 Right Click Tools latest version available, one can download from the below link
All the advantages from the above link are below( actual source is above link)

1.       Most of the tools that were included in the original SMS Console Additions V1.4

2.       The ability to see the computer details and security compliance web reports for a single client inside collections

3.       A separate drill down for client logs as well as security update client logs.

4.       The ability to check the status of an advertisement with a right click from that advertisement In order to get the client and the advertisement web reports to work you must perform the following.

5.       Fixed the right click tools on the "collections" that didn't open a CMD window when running. Also fixed the echo so the results now show up in a command window

6.        Will detect the version of the tool installed so re-installation of unnecessary files does not occur when new versions are released

7.        Now has an entry in Add Remove Programs which enables un-installation of the program

8.       No more hard coding of your site code to get scripts and reports to run correctly

  1. Detects and uninstalls any previous versions of the tool.
  2. Right click tool added to the software updates node, but it only works if there is a update list with patches deployed. 
  3. Prefixed each tool with your SCCM site code for easier recognition
  4. Right click ability on each advertisement that will display three web reports
  5. Added a prompt to see the CCMsetup.log on the SCCM Client install
  6. Fixed the Client Action for User Policy Evaluation and Update
  1. Added all the client actions from the control panel including the Security Updates Scan and Security Updates Deployment Evaluation
  2. Added an extension to the client tools that will tell you what collection a user or system belongs to.
  3. Added a web report to show all the advertisements for a certain system.
  1. CCM and CCMSetup directories now work properly.
  1. Added the Software Updates Scan Cycle to the Collection root so it runs not just on one client but a whole collection.  Requested by a member from the forum community.
  2. Added Support for Windows 2008 64bit.
  3. New Tool to Re-run advertisements from a drop down list.
  4. Added the ability to run client actions from the Query results.
  5. Fixed issue with script.bat
