  • You need to add the description as an AD attribut in the AD System Discovery. Once you have done that, you will see the data in the system resource class along with the other discovery information.

  • Are you looking for the description from AD or on the PC itself?

  • here you go..

    AD Description: Find out the computer attribute related to description, then add to AD_SYS discover to get this info from AD into SCCM. Once it gets it it will be available in v_r_system class which can be query by SQL

    Computer Description: v_gs_operating_system class gets this from clients and shows it as "description". Query (something like select description, csname from v_gs_operating_system)  this SCCM view to get description.

  • To confirm what I am reading here, under Site Settings --> Discovery Methods -->  Active Directory System Discovery, I need to go to the 'Active Directory attribute' tab and add 'AD_SYS' as a field or 'description' as a field?

  • In the above mentioned location you can find the details of AD system Discovery.

    Also, FYI. Find the detailed flow chart of AD system discovery and other discovery methods in the below technet article? This flowchart will tell you what are the mandatory fields required for this discovery and when it will get failed.
