SCCM Console Debugger – Show SCCM Object Details Option

SCCM console has many hidden debugging options. In the SCCM Console Debugger video tutorial post, you will see and learn more details about debugging options.

SCCM Console WMI Classes

Before going into SCCM console debug options and show object details option, you can learn more about SCCM WMI Classes related to Console and provider.

NOTE! – SCCM Console Debugger option called “Show Object Details” shall help to get the following WMI class details from SCCM console itself. More information about the right click option called Show Object Details in the video guide here.

  • The SMS_InstanceChangeNotification WMI class that notifies the SCCM admin console that an alert has changed its status.
  • The SMS_ObjectContainerItem contains information about an SCCM console folder item (Object details inside a particular folder in SCCM console etc…).
  • The SMS_ObjectContainerNode contains information for a given SCCM Console folder (folder details Folder Name etc..).
  • The SMS_ObjectContentExtraInfo & SMS_ObjectContentInfo contains the details about Application or Package Content Information and some extra information.

NOTE! – I don’t find the much difference between SMS_ObjectContentExtraInfo & SMS_ObjectContentInfo WMI classes.

  • The SMS_RoleInObjectType object helps to map a role and its associated object types.
  • The SMS_SearchFolder WMI class behaves the same as SMS_ObjectContainerNode is only used for search operations.
