Systems Management Question

Create a label for certain software and only include certain computers by name.

05/08/2015 1545 views
I want to create a smart label for display name contains Microsoft sql server 2008 r2 and I want to only include certain computers by name. I created a device label that contains the computers I want. So I thought I could make the smart label with display name and add label names = to the device label that I created but it doesn't work.  Any help would be appreciated.

  • Not sure I follow, would the "Label Names"=xxxxxx be the name of the license asset?

You can do it and you are on the right track. I have found that I have to create such a Smart Label from "Devices" and use "Software Titles" = Microsoft sql server 2008 r2 then "Label Names" =xxxxxx

  • 1. Software label name = CCI xyzsoftware
    process is create software smart label where display name = xyzsoftware
    2. Software Asset name = xyzsoftware SW Asset
    process is add new software asset where software label = CCI xyzsoftware
    3. License Asset name = xyzsoftware
    process is add new license asset where applies to software = xyzsoftware SW Asset

    There are many installs of xyzsoftware total of 29, my license asset has a manual entry of License Count: 2
    xyzsoftware has many types of licensing so I want only two computers to show up as what I might name as xyzsoftware Premium in a device label and not see an installed count of 29 when I look at licenses under assets.
    4. Device label name = xyzsoftware Premium devices
    process is create device smart label where software titles = CCI xyzsoftware
    and label names = ?
    and system name = computer1
    or system name = computer2
