Hi there,

we´ve started using K1000 2 weeks ago, and now there is a need to install different Intel WIFI suites, with different configurations.
My idea was creating Smart Labels based on the network interface (Wireless Wifi Link 4965agn), but didn´t see any chance to create a label for NICs.

Is this right or am I totally on a wrong way.

Is there any software inventory entry that represents an outdated package that needs to be updated?

wow, fast answer.

yes there are several software entries that represents the differnet network interfaces in different versions of the Intel PROSet Wireless Software (not in all versions outdated, but without the needed option to do a domain pre logon, and therefor all without the needed config).

one way could be a zip file containing all different PROSet software versions and also one vbs, cmd or whatever script to determine the WLAN NIC and install the right software with the right config. But i prefer a better solution with KACE.

I think this should be possible with a custom smart label.

You can join machine to the machine nic table looking for a specific nic name.

Post your sql, we'll help if you get stuck.

You can do it by NIC but then your MI will be deploying to machines that already have it. It would be best if you could tie it to a software item. If you cannot tie it to a specific software item is there anything that you can identify for a custom inventory rule?

I have one for Video Card to install drivers, I guess it is possible for NIC aswell.

Smartlabel:
select *, UNIX_TIMESTAMP(now()) - UNIX_TIMESTAMP(LAST_SYNC) as LAST_SYNC_TIME,
UNIX_TIMESTAMP(MACHINE.LAST_SYNC) as LAST_SYNC_SECONDS
from ORG1.MACHINE
LEFT JOIN KBSYS.KUID_ORGANIZATION ON KUID_ORGANIZATION.KUID=MACHINE.KUID LEFT JOIN KBSYS.SMMP_CONNECTION ON SMMP_CONNECTION.KUID = MACHINE.KUID AND KUID_ORGANIZATION.ORGANIZATION_ID = 1
where (( VIDEO_CONTROLLERS like '%Matrox Millennium P690%'))
