Custom Software Inventory and Managed Install - Reading Text File
I am trying to create a managed install for a small update that one of our software vendors has released. This update does not increment a file version, registry key, or anything else which would be considered useful for creating a custom software inventory; it does however append a specific string of text to a log file.
It seems that in order to create a custom software inventory to acheive a managed install, I would want to say something like: File X contains String Y.
I understand how to return the contents of the log file using ShellCommandTextReturn, but this only allows me to read it back using a smart label. Every machine that contains that file is returned under that software label, so I cannot effectively manage an install using this method. They would all be skipped becuase they already match the label.
How can I create a custom software label that will search the contents of a text file? Or is there another way to do this with Smart Labels? I could probably script this, but Managed Installs are so much cleaner.
