Scripting Question

K1000 - Get a file from clients

01/19/2017 1190 views
So, Autodesk sent us this file to make an inventory of Autodesk's softwares installed in our machines. This is done by an executable with a bunch of dlls and in the end it generates a file without extension in a folder where the .exe was located. The thing is: we have to execute this .exe in evey single machine.

I already managed to copy the files via File Synchronizations in K1000 (within a Winzip file) to a Windows Directory in the clients and then execute the .exe via scripting. But I don't know if there's any way I can get the generated files in each client back somehow, and to be honest I doubt it's possible. 

Is important to say that some of the computers are not in the local network to copy via a bat or something. Some of them are off site.

  • Hi Yuri, were you able to do this? Trying the same right now

All Answers

you can create a CIR to read the file into inventory this way
ShellCommandTextReturn(type file.txt)
then run a report on that cir to create a list.

or upload a file in your script
