KACE Product Support Question

Can I customize the information that is reported to K1000 by Dell Command Monitor?

10/27/2016 1128 views
I have installed Dell Command Monitor on my laptops.  I was curious if there is a way to get KACE to pull in additional info from Command Monitor besides the default stuff it shows in inventory.  I am trying to figure out what state the embedded SATA controller is currently in (RAID or AHCI). I was able to find this info through WMI in root/dcim/sysman and I can query it with PowerShell.  I know I can have my script write the info into a reg key to be picked up by KACE as a piece of software, but I wasn't sure if there is a way to have the info display along with the rest of the command monitor info under inventory.  Any help is appreciated.

I use the dell Command|Configure on my machines and this is how I read the bios settings into inventory

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c @echo off  & del c:\programdata\dell\kace\user\bios.txt & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\Command Configure\X86_64\cctk.exe" -o=C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\user\bios.txt & type C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\user\bios.txt) 

it gives this in the machine inventory

You can create other cirs to filter thru that file or use the reporting filter to use the contains/does not contain search feature of the CIR in the report.

example of filtering CIR that gives me the boot order from that file also

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c @echo off && for %g in (c:\programdata\dell\kace\user\bios.txt) do (findstr /b /c:"bootorder" %g))
