So we have been hard at work getting all of assets inventoried on the Kace1000 and I was wondering if it was possible to create a lable or script that runs against a list of Mac addresses that the voip phones are setup with so we can upload them to the asset management of the Kace so we can track how many phones and who the phones are going to in the Kace.

I know it's not an answer, but I believe this is similiar to what you are wanting?

Are the VOIP phone on a separate subnet or IP range?  If so, you may be able to use this approach:

If you are new to REGEX, here's my breakdown of a few examples so you can see exactly how it works:

If there is no segregation of VOIP IP addresses, another idea might be to do a network scan (Inventory > IP Scan) of the subnet(s) that have the VOIP phones and see if there might be some differentiating criteria in the results that you could use to create a smart label (i.e. unique SNMP, unique prefix, etc).

There are other possibilities, but depend on whether the phones are using DHCP or static IPs (or ranges) as to whether they would be worthwhile.
