  1. I was wondering if anyone had an easy solution to something that I cannot figure out when modifying a dataview. Basically, I am trying to add the following line to a dataview to display DNS information as a field, but the way the control center presents the field causes it to fail. This query works successfully when run from SQL directly: SELECT RIGHT(Computers.DNSInfo,LOCATE(':',REVERSE(Computers.DNSInfo))-1) AS `Agent DNS` FROM computers; However, when appending it to the dataview's select column (as I have done numerous times in the past), the dataview simply will not display in
  2. Appreciate the responses. I just solved the issue with a workaround. I essentially wrote a script that queries a dataset containing the machines I need from SQL and then iterates through each to schedule a script against each of those machines. For now, this serves my current need. In the future, it would be nice to be able to create dataviews and searches with a true 'group by'. It is possible to group dataviews presently but not to select distinct records in the traditional sense from what I can tell.
  3. Thanks, tstephens. I thought about that as a workaround but the only problem is it's not dynamic. We'd have to manually set the EDF values for the machines we'd like included in the group. If a machine is decommissioned that was set as a member or a new customer is added, we'd have to select a different machine to have the unique value. We were hoping to have this work automatically. Some other workarounds I thought of would be building a script that would essentially replicate the autojoin functionality for a specific group and search criteria using custom SQL commands, but this would be
  4. Does anyone know of a way to make a search with 'group by' criteria and actually make it work for an autojoin? Scenario is this: I need a search that returns ONLY one machine from each client currently under contract. I have this working by modifying the search in the database and appending a group by to the end of the search. However, while the search reflects properly when viewing it in the control center, the group I linked it to for an autojoin is populating all machines from each client rather than just one from each. Creating a search by modifying it in the database is clearly
  5. I sent this to Labtech support today, but I figured I would post here for anyone experiencing this issue. Standard disclaimer of 'this could be known already and I may be late to the game' on this usually applies. We are presently on Labtech 10 (awaiting upgrade to 10.5, if anyone knows any show stopping bugs I'd love to hear them) and this is in reference to OSX Agent version 100.253. We discovered an issue with the OSX agent that can cause the agent to stop connecting to the Labtech server. If a secondary server address is specified in an applied template for a machine, the pipe sy
  6. Something that I never could quite figure out was copying multiple remote monitors between groups. From what I could tell from searching around (and I could be missing something here), there was no simple way of duplicating remote monitors that had been created under one group to another. For example, in my scenario I created a number of custom event log monitors that I wanted to move to a different group in order to change the associated Alert Template for a particular customer. The only options I could find for this were the following: 1. Drag created monitors from a machine that alr
  7. Well, I'm not much help on this because I took the route of scripting (exactly like you said). I created a group that matches machines with patching enabled and do one time script executions for out-of-band patches that require immediate installs.
  8. I would be careful with this. I believe not removing the Acronis drivers (snapman) correctly/completely can lead to bluescreens on the machine. I began working on a script a while back to detect and remove snapman according to Acronis' documentation but I don't remember actually finishing it or testing in production.
  9. Not a part of the pilot program so I don't know what has changed for the redirector setups. Is it even attempting to launch?
  10. I appreciate everyone's input. Basically confirms to me that it's not what we are looking for, unfortunately.
  11. Can anyone share their experiences with LDAP / Active Directory integration and Labtech? I find it to be crazy that we have to manage a second set of credentials for our users but I remember when I tried to implement this in the past it seemed half-baked at best. According to the limited documentation, HTTP authentication is required to sync the password for users. Does that mean every time an AD password is changed users have to connect to the LT control center with HTTP enabled? Are there issues with the integration as a whole? Is anyone actually using this? I'd appreciate any feedback.
  12. I can tell you now that I have invested a decent amount of time into this in the past to no avail. There are several utilities Symantec makes available for removal but there are problems associated with each. Norton Removal Tool: This has the ability to remove the packages that you are likely concerned with. i.e. Norton Internet Security, Norton 360, etc. From what I can tell this is the only package available to remove these utilities but requires a CAPTCHA response from the user and offers no command line silent functionality. I have done a few very basic attempts at reverse engineering
  13. That specific version of NetCat has been in existence for years and gets flagged by anti-virus vendors due to the potential for misuse (i.e. as a backdoor shell). The ncat.exe executable is an updated implementation of NetCat utilized in NMap and is less likely to show false negatives although offering the same functionality.
  14. Does anyone have any real-world use cases for vPro in their deployments aside from KVM they can share? The thing that initially deterred me from further exploring this is the restriction on KVM access with an external graphics card present. I'm fairly confident at least 70% of our vPro enabled machines would have external cards enabled for multiple displays.
