import rules - got one working but need to expand
Ok so I will throw a few things out there first to set the tone..
We currently have a custom data class with a custom inventory. It works 100% in NS6 and in NS7.1 SP2 MP1
now all is well in NS7.1 world for XP and up OS.... since Win2k is no longer supported I was told that I need to import data from my NS6.
I have never done this before so I set off to do it...
I have most of it working but need some help here.
Trying this on our DEV server..
I was able to filter out the win2k boxes with the Data Filter [OS Name] like '%2000%'
that worked and brought in only 163 machines.
Now our custom inventory I want to bring in doesnt have os name in it...
so when I create an import rule, tie it to the custom inventory it wants to bring in 4300 devices.. err no I dont want all prod comuters brought in only the data for the 2k boxes. how do you filter this out?
not sure what to put as you cant join multiple tables.. since I used inv_aex_ac_identification with data filter [OS Name] like '%2000%' that kept all 4300 out but just the ones i wanted....
when I click show data it brings up the data for the custom inventory. but in the drop down box is the inv_aex_ac_identification.
how do I reference that in the data filter as I would like to put in there... [OS Name] like '%2000%'
do you do this in associations or reverse associations?
