I need help please.
Have a txt file of specific Hostnames that I need to Distribute a Software package to.
I have tried creating a Label containing those Hostnames, but cannot find a way.
Is there a thread about this ?

You can do this with a smart label:
1. In the Inventory, Expand the Smart Label tab
2. Create a smart label where NAME = "onecomputer"
3. Browse to Home, Label Management, Smart Labels
4. Find and click on the smart label you created in step 2
5. Click the button to edit the smart label
6. Find this statement:
WHERE ((MACHINE.NAME = 'onecomputer'))
7. Replace it with:
WHERE MACHINE.NAME in ('onecomputer', 'twocomputer', 'nextcomputer')
except use your own comma separated list of names, being sure that they are each quoted
8. Save the smart label

The label will get applied to the target computers when they next update their inventory. 

Once the label is setup you can create your managed install to deploy the software and target said label.
