Conditional Jobs based on OS (transition from 6.9 to 7.1)
I have been tasked with porting jobs from the Altiris 6.9 Deployment Console to the 7.1 Management Console, and I'm running into issues in regards to conditions in client jobs. (I confess I'm really new to this product. I'm just a student worker for my university's IT department.) I've attached screenshots of the new and old consoles.
In the Deployment Console, we have a lot of jobs that execute differently depending on which operating system was installed. It was fairly straightforward to implement them because conditions used fields related to the computers themselves.
But in the Management Console, it appears that while conditions have been made more flexible by using the output of previous tasks, using properties of the computers themselves seems to no longer be an option; none of the fields from 6.9 appear in the list.
At this point, I'm guessing that either there's a task to query the database for a field (which I can't find), or I need to create a task that returns the Operating System (and I don't know how to return a value from a command script to the Altiris Client). Could someone point me in the right direction?
