SCCM Query to create collection for x86 and x64 machines In this post you will find the SCCM Query to create collection for x86 and x64 machines. Device collections in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager represent a logical container for a grouping of devices. These collections can then be used to perform a number of tasks, such as deploying software, compliance settings or task sequences. If you have the SCCM setup in your organization and if you are asked to group x64 machines and x86 machines to a separate collection then you can use the queries listed in this post so that your work gets done quickly. Query based collections allow an administrator to provide any criteria that the SCCM database may hold about systems, and automatically make those systems a member of that collection.

To group all the x64 devices to one collection use the below query.

If you don’t want to use the above query and if you want to manually create the SCCM query to create collection x64 machines then below the screenshot should help you.

Where

Criterion Type = Simple Value, Attribute Class = Computer System, Attribute = System Type.

Operator = is equal to, Value = x64-based PC.

    For some reason the collections I am creating to separate each OS by 32 and 64-bit versions, are not adding up.

    Essentially, I have collections for each OS; Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, etc…

    When I try to create say 2 collections for every OS, one for 32 and one for 64, I use the above collections as my limiting. I then setup the query rules, but then I only get a handful of servers in the new 32/64-bit collections. If I add up the amount of PCs in the 32 and 64 bit collections it does not equal the amount in the limiting collection.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Nick

      Same here for me. I have a collection that is All Client Workstations and then I create x86 and x64 collections off that and I am short about 40 workstations. Any suggestions?

  • @Aleksey – Noted. I will try to get the query for you.
