Hi Friends,

I needed to write a job in DS console. my requirement is:

I have 2 applications namely X and Y and i have my clients grouped in DS console namely Lab and Bedroom based on thier locations.

Now i need to write a job in such a way that it has to identify to which group client belongs to and should copy the appropriate application to the client.

if it is Lab it has to copy X application or else it is Bedroom copy Y application.

Any idea on how to proceed with this job?

Thanks for your valuable time on this.

Note: we dont have the NS installed in our systems, we have to work only on DS console.

The drop down at the top of the right hand pane.

You might need to use a User Defined Token or you might find that you can use one of the built in ones; I don't think there's one for Group.

You need to use "User defined tokens" in your case.

Please follow the steps below in order to create User defined token for "Group".

1. Go to Jobs pane and create new job

2. You will find description pane on the right hand side after selecting newly created job

3. Go to condition drop down menu and click on setup -> new

4.  On Condition setting Window you will have to setup condition to be meet before scheduling task.

 ( Here in your case you want to copy X application for clients belongs to group LAB.)

So select Name as LAB in textbox and click on add

5. On condition window

Select "User Defined Token" in Field dropdown.

Select "is exactly" in Operation dropdown.

Type LAB in value textbox.

Type %#!computer_display@group_name% in Token textbox and then click ok.

 You will find that User defined token with value LAB will be get added in condition dropdown

6. Repeat the steps 3 to 5 to add User defined token with value Bedroom in condition dropdown.

7. Now select LAB in condition dropdown and create task to copy X application.

8. Then select Bedroom in condition dropdown and create task to copy Y application.

9. Schedule this job on clients .
