Hi Folks.

I am in the processing of working on patching schedules but ran into a small snag. I was trying to use smart labels to differentiate between member servers and domain controllers but I cannot keep it separated. I can't quite see from the available selections in the smart labels which would allow to me select a 2003 R2 DC as opposed to a member server which is also running 2003 R2.

Would anyone have a suggestion regarding that?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You could put a description in the domain controllers and then query off of that, but each time you put a new DC in it would have to have that description tag in it.

Cheers,

Mike

Do your domain controllers have a naming scheme that highlights their purpose?
How about using an LDAP Label to query the Domain Controllers container in AD?

Would either of those two work?

Hi.

I have descriptions on all DC's. The agent doesn't seem to be consistent with the results as only 4 out of 18 are actually showing a description. I have gone through and double-checked each one. As for the LDAP label, I hadn't thought of thought but am quite interested in trying it. I'll see how that goes.

Thanks for the ideas.

Ok - I manually went on to each server and added the description. Somehow it made sense to me that the description, if filled in AD, would be added to the server's description. I find that isn't the case... Have to get the list to repoll as a forced update of the Kagent does not update the description.
