Received the “SMS Collection Evaluator failed to process Collection Settings changes” error in SCCM on the “SMS_COLLECTION_EVALUATOR” Component. The fix was simple and simply overlooked during the SCCM installation:

1. Open the ADSI editor.
2. Browse to the “System Management” container. Should be listed under the “System” container.

3. Right-Click on the “System Management” container and click on the “Properties”.
4. Click on the “Security” tab and review if the “$” user exists. If exists, skip to step 6.
5. Click on Add, then “Object Types” and then check the “Computers”. Next type the Computername of the SCCM server and click on “OK”.


6. Click on “Advanced” and then highlight the “” entry and click on “Edit”.
7. Change the “Apply To” Drop Down to “This object and all descendant objects” and then check the “Allow Full control” permission.

8. Restart the SCCM server.
