Hi

Does anybody know a way of restricting a managed installation only to run when the computer is onsite?

We have some big installations (Autodesk software) that are installing at bootup. Because of the install-package size we are using [Run Command Only (do not download file)], but we also would like the client not to run the installation when it is off-site or connected by VPN -only when it is onsite.


Best regards

Steffen

The VPN should have another Subnet, if setup correctly.
Create a label which checks for the local subnet and bind the installation to that subnet.

You can use this smart label if your subnet is 192.168.2.0/24
SELECT MACHINE.NAME AS SYSTEM_NAME, SYSTEM_DESCRIPTION, MACHINE.IP, MACHINE.MAC, MACHINE.ID as TOPIC_ID FROM MACHINE  WHERE ((MACHINE.IP like '192.168.2.%'))

  • Hi Nico_K
    Yes, that would be a solution if the client always is using a VPN connection.
    The problem is that we have laptops that are onsite all day and therefore get the instructions to start the MI at next bootup. But if the next bootup isn’t onsite I don’t want the MI to run.
    • set it to run always. If the client is in VPN the machine leaves the label.
      Alternatively you could use a (BATCH) script, which checks the IP when the installation starts
