I have just updated my article by adding a comment that includes the SQL behind the new view that ITMS 7.5 adds to "Manage > Software".

There is a useful SQL query in TECH183347 to measure queue processing but it doesn't contain descriptions for the Queue numbers, I've added a few CASE statements to do this:

SELECT Queueid As [Queue ID],
 [Queue]=CASE Queueid
 WHEN 0 Then 'Priority'
 WHEN 1 Then 'Fast'
 WHEN 2 Then 'Normal'
 WHEN 3 Then 'Slow' 
 WHEN 4 Then 'Large'
 END, COUNT(Id) AS [THREADS IN USE] 

FROM EventQueueEntry where ProcessingState = 2 
GROUP BY ProcessingState, QueueId order by queueid, ProcessingState
The descriptions are taken from DOC5480: http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5480

After a clean install of ITMS 7.1.2 MP1.1 v7RU, it was found that it was not possible to create a new CMDB rule as its first dropdown list failed to open.

To workaround this issue, you need to clone a sample CMDB rule and then modify it to suit your needs.

Here is a handy SQL query that will allow you to search your database tables for a particular word or words (tested against SQL 2008 R2):

 

**********************************

CREATE TABLE myTable99 (TABLE_NAME sysname, COLUMN_NAME sysname, Occurs int)
GO

SET NOCOUNT ON

DECLARE @SQL varchar(8000), @TABLE_NAME sysname, @COLUMN_NAME sysname, @Sargable varchar(80), @Count int

SELECT @Sargable = 'enter word or words here'

DECLARE insaneCursor CURSOR FOR
    SELECT c.TABLE_NAME, c.COLUMN_NAME
      FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.Columns c INNER JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.Tables t
        ON t.TABLE_SCHEMA = c.TABLE_SCHEMA AND t.TABLE_NAME = c.TABLE_NAME
     WHERE c.DATA_TYPE IN ('char','nchar','varchar','nvarchar','text','ntext')
       AND t.TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'

OPEN insaneCursor...

Does anyone know who does the scheduling for the Michigan Endpoint Management User Group meeting? I find these meetings valuable and want to assume responsibility for managing them and getting support for them. Please contact me about the details for being a part of setting the meetings up.

The following query has the ability to list all Software Releases and their associated rules or just the rules associated with a specifc Software Release:

SELECT rsr.Name AS [Software Release],rir.Name AS [Rule],rir.[Description] AS [Rule Description]
FROM RM_ResourceSoftware_Release rsr
JOIN ResourceAssociation ra ON ra.ParentResourceGuid = rsr.[Guid]
JOIN RM_ResourceInventory_Rule rir ON rir.[Guid] = ra.ChildResourceGuid
--WHERE rsr.Name = 'specific software release'
ORDER BY rsr.Name ASC

As Applicability and Detection rules are both classed as inventory rules, they do not have their own resource type or class; however, it does appear that detection rule names begin with "Detection Rule for", which should allow you to distinguish between the two.

Hi Everyone,

Cloud-enabled Management (CEM) is a new feature that allows you to manage client computers outside the corporate network, even if you do not use a Virtual Private Network. CEM was first introduced with IT Management Suite 7.5.

To make the process of implementation quick and easy, we have prepared a whitepaper that describes the concept, requirements and the process of implementation of Cloud-enabled Management.

You can find the whitepaper at the following URL:
http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC7049

Hey KCUG - Don, Amy, Matt (all from Gentiva) and myself (from Cerner) were able to attend the Altiris 7.5 summit in Salt Lake last week.

They have published the sessions and the slides are available for download - https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/75-summit-november-2013-slides-and-videos

If you have any questions, post them here and I'm sure one of us will be able to answer anything that might come up.
