Ever ran a report against the vSMS_ServiceWindowtable of SCCM and realized the Schedules object was…. well, not very readable?

Have no fear! Here is a c# solution.

My solution is based off of this pseudocode: How to Configure Hardware Inventory Settings

Here is the SQL Query I use:

select

    c.CollectionID
    ,c.SiteID
    ,c.CollectionName
    ,c.CollectionType
    ,c.ServiceWindowsCount
    ,c.LimitToCollectionID
    ,c.LimitToCollectionName
    ,c.ObjectPath
    ,sw.Name
    ,sw.ServiceWindowType
    ,sw.Description
    ,sw.Enabled
    ,sw.Schedules
from v_Collections c
JOIN vSMS_ServiceWindow sw on sw.SiteID = c.SiteID

I left out the piece which queries a database, and returns data rows. If you are reading this, I assume you can manage to figure that piece out.

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace LIB.SCCM.Models
{
    /// <summary>
    /// SCCM Table - vSMS_ServiceWindow
    /// </summary>
    /// 
    [DebuggerDisplay("{Name} - {Description}")]
    public class ServiceWindow
    {
        public ServiceWindow(DataRow row)
        {
            this.Name = row.Field<string>("Name");
            this.Description = row.Field<string>("Description");
            this.WindowType = (ServiceWindowType)row.Field<int>("ServiceWindowType");
            this.Enabled = row.Field<bool>("Enabled");

            //Parse out the funky schedule...
            var Schedule_HEX = row.Field<string>("Schedules");

            //Split the hex string into two pieces.
            string StartTime_HEX = Schedule_HEX.Substring(0, 8);
            string Recurrence_HEX = Schedule_HEX.Substring(8, 8);

            //Parse a long from the provided hex values, then convert that to a binary string... Lastly, Pad left, until there are 32 total bits.
            var StartTime_BIN = Convert.ToString(long.Parse(StartTime_HEX, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber), 2).PadLeft(32, '0');
            var Recurrence_BIN = Convert.ToString(long.Parse(Recurrence_HEX, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber), 2).PadLeft(32, '0');

            //Parse out the start date.
            int Min = Convert.ToInt32(StartTime_BIN.Substring(0, 6), 2);

            int Duration = Convert.ToInt32(StartTime_BIN.Substring(26, 6), 2);

            //Convert those values into a valid date time. Seconds are not supported in sccm schedules.
            this.StartTime = new DateTime(Year, Month, Day, Hour, Min, 0);

            //Parse out the duration.
            int Duration_Hours = Convert.ToInt32(Recurrence_BIN.Substring(0, 5), 2);
            int Duration_Mins = Convert.ToInt32(Recurrence_BIN.Substring(5, 5), 2);

            //Store those values as the duration Timespan. SCCM does not support seconds in schedules.
