Symptoms

All systems show in a collection after removing the criteria from a query for a query based collection in System Center Configuration Manager 2007.

Cause

Removing the criteria in the query for a query based collection removes the from statement from the query and leaves only the select statement. This causes all systems to be added to a collection that may already have an OSD or other advertisement targeted to it.

Resolution

If you need to modify an existing query based collection, delete the existing query and create a new one instead.
