We are new to the K2000 and have been using the Get/Set Computer name that KACE gave us. My question is, does anyone have a Get/Set computer description application handy, where it prompts for a description and then sets the description later on. We use custom descriptions, so it would be nice to be prompted to type them in.


I tried to use this, but it must be so old it no longer works.

  • I do not have anything ready but I think that something that ask interactively an input to the user is really not a great idea during a deploy process that should be unattended and so silent...
    An alternative idea may be to create a small CSV database file MAC ADDRESS , DESC and a small VBS that :
    1-determines the MAC addess
    2-lookup in the database file is there is a match
    3-set the description

    This can be a post-install task.

do you have a k1000 also?  We use scripts with labels to set the description via enforce registry settings scripts.  We have one for every deprtment we have.  This is what we use the description for.

Hi Kevino2010,

It would be easy enough to create yourself a little app that runs in the same way the computer name does, to then save your input and call it later to set the computer description. 

Hope that makes sense!
