This is probably a "duh" question that will make me look a plank... again :)

Building packages for the user portal, and I need to limit them to a machine smart label which defines subnets where there's a replcaition share (so they don't hammer the WAN pulling the package from here!)

At the bottom, we have "Limit Access To User Labels", which has an "Edit" link to select which labels, great, only a subset of users can install.

We also have "Also Restrict By Machine Label" which presumably restricts which machines are alowed to install the package. But that's just a checkbox - there's nowhere to select which machine labels are allowed.

I looked up the manual and it says "(Optional) Select the Also Restrict By Machine Label check box to restrict software library deployment by machine label." Urrrmm yes. I still can't see how..

If anyone knows the stupidly obvious answer here please put me out of your misery gently? :)

Choose your machine labels where it says "Limit Access to User Labels" and then check the "Also Restrict by Machine Label" checkbox.

Hi Andy
Ah, rightho so you can mix user and machine labels to the one filter. Makes sense now. Thanks!

BTW am I right you can't include Label Groups in this filter?

A label group should work, but I haven't tried it.

Correct, you cannot use label groups here. A label group is only for menu organization and is not useable in any of the "target machines" nor other pick lists.

<laughs> Beat me to it!
So can I add Smart Labels to a static Label, or another Smart Label, or do I have to remember and manually add each Smart label to my portal deployments... and then go back and update every one when I add a new Site Server?

You can certainly make a smart label that simply includes other smart labels. It's all in the SQL. [;)]

What i usually do is a go thru the smart label wizard and use label name contains.

Just remember that the order of the labels is important.

You can check under Home -> label -> smart labels -> choose action -> order labels.

The lower the number the higher the priority.
