Creating Dynamic Filter in Altiris CMS 7.1 SP1

Created: 19 Jul 2011 • Updated: 21 Jul 2011 | 3 comments

Hi

 

I am new to Altiris. I want to know how to create dynamic collections/filters in altiris. Does anyone already has a query written for creating dynamic collection. I have the NetBIOS names for all the machines for which I need to have a collection. Please help.

 

Thanks

Does this get you closer?  It's a video from Steven Riley on filters:

You also said you wanted to make a dynamic filter, but that you have a list of machines.  This suggests it would be a static filter.  If the link above doesn't help, could you give a little more detail about what you want to do?

I would think creating tjhe filter based upon a query with something as simple as:

SELECT *

FROM vComputer vC

WHERE vC.[Name] LIKE 'computername%'

ORDER BY vC.Name ASC

Ithin kif his computer names are all named somthing similar this should work. Without know what the list looks like its tough to really know how to build the filter.
