In Configuration Manager, the DeleteMembershipRules Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class method is used to delete more than one membership rule from the collection.
The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and is intended to show the definition of the method.
SInt32 DeleteMembershipRules( SMS_CollectionRule collectionRules )
- Data type: SMS_CollectionRule ArrayQualifiers: [in]SMS_CollectionRule Server WMI Class objects to delete.
An SInt32 data type that is 0 to indicate success or non-zero to indicate failure.
For information about handling returned errors, see About Configuration Manager Errors.
The following example shows how to delete one or more collection rules.
Dim instCollection As SWbemObject 'Instance of SMS_Collection Dim instQueryRule As SWbemObject 'Instance of SMS_CollectionRuleQuery Dim instDirectRule As SWbemObject 'Instance of SMS_CollectionRuleDirect Dim Rules() As Variant 'Array of rules for DeleteMembershipRules Dim i As Integer Set instCollection = Services.Get("SMS_Collection.CollectionID=""<collectionid>""") ReDim Rules(1) '(0 to 1) array must contain exact number of objects i = 0 ' Identify the query rule. Set instQueryRule = Services.Get("SMS_CollectionRuleQuery").SpawnInstance_ instQueryRule.QueryID = <queryid> Set Rules(i) = instQueryRule i = i + 1 ' Identify the direct rule. Set instDirectRule = Services.Get("SMS_CollectionRuleDirect").SpawnInstance_ instDirectRule.ResourceID = <resourceid> Set Rules(i) = instDirectRule ' Delete the rules from the collection. instCollection.DeleteMembershipRules Rules
