ConfigMgr and “Who updated All Systems–again”?

As this questions shows up at all places for the same reason; Someone pressed the “Updated Membership” on a collection way up in hierarchy of collections. A simple right-click and press – and then accept.

The action is simple, however if the collection is ‘far up’ in the hierarchy and have all (or many) collections indirectly connected to it also start to update – an unforgiven workload. Delays, frustration and mayhem will ensue (perhaps a bit over the top here..)

If you are a type of organisation that blames people – well, here you go!

Choose to create a new Status Message Query and use the following query to filter the search based on time and only look for specific the refresh action of collections

Query;

select stat.*, ins.*, att1.*, stat.Time 
from SMS_StatusMessage as stat 
left join SMS_StatMsgInsStrings as ins on stat.RecordID = ins.RecordID 
left join SMS_StatMsgAttributes as att1 on stat.RecordID = att1.RecordID 
where stat.MessageType = 768 and 
stat.MessageID = 30104 and 
stat.Time >= ##PRM:SMS_StatusMessage.Time## 
order by stat.Time desc

End result – with the user account and collection to blame;
