This article continues from Part 1 http://tompopov.blogspot.com/2011/05/desired-configuration-management.html

To apply Configuration Baseline to Computer Collection right click on target collection and click on Assign Configuration Baseline:

Choose the Configuration Baseline, in this case FCS Installed Baseline, click OK, Next and Close.

When the Configuration Baseline is applied to the target computer, go on SCCM Configuration Manager client, click on Evaluation of selected FCS Installed Baseline configuration baseline and clicking on View Report you will get that the status is Non-Compliant:

Next step is to create Dynamic Computer collection based on the status of the DCM.

Right click on Collections and choose New Collection. Write the name, in this case is: System: DCM Dynamic Computer Collection

Click on query button, write the name of the query (in this case FCS Compliant Status), click on Radio buton Limit to collection to choose the collection (System: DCS tests was the Computer Collection where DCM Configuration baseline was applied) and click on Edit Query Statement.  

Click on Criteria tab, click on yellow star, choose Select on Criteria properties window, in Select Atribute window on Attribute class choose Configuration Item Compliance state and on Attribute choose Compliance State Name.

Click on Value button and choose Non-Compliant in Values window.

Click Ok to close Criterion Properties window and to save the criateria.

Click on the yellow start to create another criteria. Click Select on Criterion properties window, in Select Attribute window on Attribute class choose Configuration Item Compliance state and on Attribute choose Localized Display Name. Click OK to close Select Attribute window.

Choose FCS Installed Baseline from the list and click OK to close Values window.

Click OK to close the second Criteria.

To check the SQL statement click on Show Query Language button.

select *  from  SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_CI_ComplianceState on SMS_G_System_CI_ComplianceState.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_CI_ComplianceState.ComplianceStateName = "Non-Compliant" and SMS_G_System_CI_ComplianceState.LocalizedDisplayName = "FCS Installed Baseline"

Click OK to close the Query and click Next and Close to save Dynamic Computer Collection.

After Updating and refreshing this Dynamic Computer Collection on right pane you will get the computers with Non-Compliant Status or the computers which do not have FCS ForeFront installed.
