Adding computers directly to SMS collections

I don’t do this often enough to remember it, so here’s a quick guide for me (and anyone else out there still using SMS 2003).

SMS Directly adding PC to collection

  1. Start the Administrator Console, and browse to the collection you want to add the computer to.
  2. Right-click the collection and select Properties.
  3. Select Membership Rules, and then click the Computer icon.
    The “Create Direct Membership Rule Wizard” will appear.
  4. Set the “Resource class” as System Resource.
  5. Set the “Attribute name” as Netbios Name.
  6. Enter the computer name, of the computer you want to add.
  7. Click Next.
  8. You’ll be asked for a Collection the computer is in.
    I usually select All Windows <operating system> computers.
  9. Click Finish
    (and the computer will be added to the collection).
