Dynamic collection evaluation in Configuration Manager 2007 R3 periodically scans for new resources and updates a collections membership with only these new resources, independently of a full collection evaluation. When enabled for a collection, dynamic collection evaluation runs every 5 minutes and when used in conjunction with full collection evaluation can help keep collection data displayed in the administrator console more up-to-date.

The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
Dynamic collection evaluation does not replace full collection evaluation; it only evaluates newly added resources.

Use the following procedure to configure dynamic collection evaluation for a Configuration Manager 2007 R3 collection.

To configure dynamic collection evaluation

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Collections.

  2. Right-click the collection that you want to configure for dynamic collection evaluation, and then click Properties.

  3. In the Membership Rules tab of the <Collection Name> Properties dialog box, select the Dynamically add new resources check box.

  4. Click OK to exit the <Collection Name> Properties dialog box.
