The SMS_Query Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in Configuration Manager, that serves as a container for predefined queries.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.


Class SMS_Query : SMS_BaseClass
{
   String Comments;
   String Expression;
   String LimitToCollectionID;
     String Name;
   String QueryID;
     String TargetClassName;
};

The following table lists the methods in SMS_Query.

You can use SMS_Query to persist valid queries that can be used later in an application or that can be run from the Configuration Manager console.

Instances of this class with the TargetClassName property set to an SMS_StatusMessage Server WMI Class object appear in the System Status node in the Configuration Manager console. All other instances appear in the Queries node.
