Hi

I am trying to figure out how I can execute a vbscript on a workstation and retreive an output from that script back into the kbox logs. I am using an online kscript with a dependency of the vbs file and and on success task which runs cscript and the vbs. The script I am using will amend the boot order on a HP system, the result of this script could be any one of 6 outputs, from 'success' to 'access denied' or 'failure'. Obviously I can set the errorlevel that the vbscript pipes out relative to the output but I cant see how to pipe this back to the kbox. All I can do is be advised that the script executed ok. My next step was going to be to create a file/reg entry from the vbscript for each output and then create another kscript task for each one, this just seems a bit long winded and inelegant.

What I would ideally like would be to see the result of the script after it has executed on 300+ machines and clearly identify which ones had a problem at a glance.

Any help much appreciated.

Many thanks

Simon

Have the VBS output a value to an INI file, and then setup a custom inventory item to pull the value from the INI file.

I also believe that if you click the "wait for startup" checkbox in the Launch Program step in a task, one of the side effects is to pipe the stdout and stderr to the scripting logs.

Thanks for the input on this. In the end I used a registry key and a custom inventory item to get the desired outcome.

Cheers

For those who come along and wonder how you might have done it, here's a similar example. This question is very similar to the "getting data into the registry" part

Please include your code if you are able.

My code doesn't really differ from that article. It would have been great if I had seen that to begin with!
