Moveclient.vbs by Name & OS

Created: 03 Sep 2013 • Updated: 05 Sep 2013 | 7 comments

I am playing around with Moveclient.vbs.  So far I have been able to move clients to their group based on the hostname.  My question is, if I want to move a client based on their host name AND operating system type, how will I do it?

 

For Example, if I want a hostname that starts with V and has an OS of Windows 7 to go to the VDI group, how would I do this?

 

Will this work?

V*,Windows 7*,Company\Workstations\VDI

 

?

My intial thought would be no because the script seems to look at the file name (ex. hostgorups.txt or osgroups.txt) and bases it off that. You can try it though.

Based on what I've seen in the documentation, the tool is limited and why I stopped using it. It's a great tool, I just need it to do more.

I can only suggest that you test out what you're wanting to do.

You can also contact the Symantec employee who wrote the script. Send her a PM via this forum. She is very helpful.

Hello Brian,

What functionality are you looking for here?  What are you trying to do?

Thanks,

Hi Elisha,

It was similar to what Adamster may be experiencing, I think. I needed it to work based on two conditions as opposed to just one or the other.

I have servers, that are named after the location where they reside. Ex. chicago-sep1.

Our servers are on different subnet than our workstations.

So I wanted to move newly built servers with the server's name and IP address scheme into that locations server group in the SEPM.

From what I could tell it was only one OR the other as opposed to AND. Unless I completely missed something in the documentation.

Hello Adamster,

You can move a client based on host name OR operating system type.  However you cannot more a client based on host name AND operating system type.

Can you give me an idea of the use case for why you need this and what you are trying to do?

Thanks,
