Report on workstation local users

11/19/2018 654 views

Is there any way in Kace to report on the local users that exist on the workstations it sees? We had established local Admin accounts we could use if the network connection was not working, but are having trouble using it. So we wanted to see if we could get a report of the local users on each workstation and see if our local Admin account is missing without having to check each machine individually.

Thank you.

As AbhayR says, you can create a custom inventory rule.

Go to Inventory > Software > New Software

Give it a good name, I reccomend prefixing with CIF or CIR. Under the Custom Inventory Rule copy the following

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd.exe /c wmic useraccount get name)

This will now produce a list of users under the device inventory.

You can now go to Reports > New Wizard

Topic = Device
Fields to Display - Device = IP, SystemName & Anything else.
                                 Custom Fields = "YourCustomField"

Then Next all the way and you'll recieve a report that looks like this.

You can then filter on the Custom Field Name contains your admin account. : )

You can use Custom Inventory Rules feature in Software section to get the data on local users by running a windows command. Then you can report on that using a SQL report where the data can be retrieved from ORG*.MACHINE_CUSTOM_INVENTORY table in the DB.

OK, got the report. It just isn't showing them by device. But I think I can figure that out, I hope. Thank you.
