In Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, you read a Configuration Manager object by using the SWbemServices object Get method to return an object instance that is identified by a key value.
|to query for multiple objects, use either a synchronous or asynchronous query. For more information, see How to Perform a Synchronous Configuration Manager Query by Using Managed Code|
To read a Configuration Manager object
Set up a connection to the SMS Provider. For more information, see How to Connect to an SMS Provider in Configuration Manager by Using WMI.
Using the SWbemServices object that you obtain from step 1, call the Get method and specify the class and key information for the object you want.
The following VBScript code example function displays the name and description for a supplied key package identifier (packageID).
For information about calling the sample code, see Calling Configuration Manager Code Snippets.
|Visual Basic Script||Copy Code|
Sub DisplayPackageName (connection, packageID) On Error Resume Next Dim package Set package = connection.Get("SMS_Package.PackageID='" & packageID & "'") If Err.Number<>0 Then Wscript.Echo "Couldn't get package " + packageID Exit Sub End If Wscript.Echo "Package Name: " + package.Name Wscript.Echo "Package Description: " + package.Description End Sub
This example method has the following parameters:
A valid connection to the SMS Provider.
A package identifier. This can be obtained from the SMS_Package class PackageID property.
