How to determine active computers from cmdb?
In Altiris 6.9 we used to run scripts against active computers. There was a field in the dbo.computer table called "icon" that recorded the state of the computer. if the icon field had a non-zero value then it was considered "active" or online in the deployment console. This was very handy, not just for running scripts, but for simply filtering active systems in the console and knowing whether a system was logged on/off before performing remoting activities.
7.1 SP2 seems to have done away with this functionality. OR, we are just looking in the wrong places. Can anyone help? I really want a table that will show whether a system is currently active or not.
