KACE Asset Management
I'm pretty new to KACE and I was wondering if there was a way to automate certain operations. Is it possible to have the asset list autopopulate itself with specific information from the inventory list?
For example, I have a bunch of computers in both my asset list and inventory list, but the ones in my asset list don't have location information. Is it possible to automate a process such that the computers within my asset list will grab the location information from their counterparts within my inventory list so that I can perform a view by location action and only have those computers at specific locations appear?
Is it also possible to do this action but instead grab the Dell Service Tag (not necessarily to search but just to add to the assets)?

I started to answer this and then it got long but really useful so i created this blog post http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/updating-an-asset-field-with-a-smart-label-on-every-inventory
You said auto-populate but another thing you could do is a manual process. Create a report to export the data (csv format) from MACHINE and then import that into assets mapping the fields.
