  1. Support confirmed for me that updated the Control plugin through Solution Center resolves it. I completed this and can confirm the issue is resolved. However, agents that "missed" their Control install (between the time we deployed 2019.3 and the time we updated the plugin) need to have "Update Plugins" command run against them, which will force Control to install correctly.
  2. One bit of extra info I can contribute here, having just gone through the same need to create Group monitors using Powershell (via wrapper in the same manner as @j0dan). I realized that with a long Powershell script, we ran into issues converting it to a single line, due to linebreaks and other ugly characters. The solution was to convert our PS script into encoded text. This lovely bit of Powershell can be used to convert your PS1 script into batch-friendly Base64-encoded code: http://community.idera.com/powershell/powertips/b/tips/posts/converting-powershell-to-batch As posted, it actually will convert all .ps1's in a given folder, but you can widdle it down to a one-liner using the command Convert-PowerShellToBatch. You can then drop this into a one-liner in your monitor's executable line using: %windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe -encodedCommand "paste_base64_encoded_code_here" I've tested this in a few scenarios and it works beautifully.
  3. Hi Gavsto, Very helpful article (as always)! In it, you mention: I'm looking to accomplish exactly this (for a different type of monitor, but same concept). Can you advise on how to accomplish this? Where would we call the EDF variable? Into a State Based condition? Regex? Thanks very much in advance.
  4. @chavousc that sounds awesome! I think you’ve built in much more flexibility than the defaults from Sophos. And an uninstaller script is important as well for easy offboarding. I don’t think there’s much more you could add to the install side. Sophos has provided a decent framework for monitors and group installs, so I’d be interested as to whether you’re leveraging this or have just built it all from scratch. Sharing is caring!
  5. Nice! That sounds more comprehensive then that I'd built. If you do have the time, please share with us, as I'm sure everyone would benefit.
  6. Dude! This is fantastic! I’d starting building almost an almost identical script/EDF setup but stopped as the thin installer was hanging when run via command line. I did end up building scripts for using the “fat” installer (one needed per tenant), but this seems much cleaner. This is actually a great foundation they’ve given you/us. I’ll be deploying this tomorrow as we have a ton of Central rollouts planned. I’ll report back with hopefully positive results.
  7. We are also planning to build deployment and removal scripts, but would also be interested in the scripts you've mentioned. Let me know if you can share.
  8. I've got a small issue with a custom tab I've created. Tab Type: EDF and Webpage EDF list values pull just fine. For the URL value I'm using: http://www.domain.com/value=$SQL$$Select BiosVer From Computers Where ComputerID=%ComputerID%$ This works perfectly the first time you open the custom tab...it pulls the correct value from the SQL database. However, if you try to open the custom tab on another computer, it will re-use the value it pulled on the first one. The only way to 'clear' this is to quit and relaunch Control Center. So it seems as though it's getting cached somewhere. Any ideas on how to make this work? Thanks in advance.
  9. Thanks MPriest...it does help to know that's it's probably best we don't mess with the script! Has anybody written a Dataview and/or Report that they'd like to share for reporting on the extracted product keys, perhaps grouped and counted by each product? Further, has anybody managed to get recoverkeys to pull product key data from Macs on the network yet? I see it's supported, so maybe I'll give it a whirl.
  10. I'm experiencing the exact same issue. Column data appears to be 'shifted', and when I attempted to to make the same change gmad described, same result...only Windows 7 product key was inserted. Any help would be appreciated here to get this script working as intended! Thank you.
  11. Yup I'm experiencing the exact same issue as gmad. Column data appears to be 'shifted', and when I attempted to to make the same change gmad described, same result...only Windows 7 product key was inserted. Any help would be appreciated here to get this script working as intended! Thank you.
  12. Hi Guys, First off, Dashing is incredible, great work! We are new Labtech partners and Dashing was one of the first things we installed. Everything is running smoothly with the exception of password protecting the dashes. I've set a username and password, ticked Enable Login, saved, tried Rebuild and Restart Server. No matter what, we're never prompted for credentials when we access the dashboard through a browser. Moreover, when I return to the dash config, the Enable Login checkbox has unchecked itself. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks in advance.
