  • I have a dozen or so Rapid Recovery cores running on top of Windows 10. They are all more or less identical in configuration. A handfull of these, even after the initial patch scan, will not let me do anything with Windows Auto Update. Most of them return with "Automatic update not supported." A couple of them display the current automatic update setting, but there's no checkbox for me to select t...

  • Hi @ll, I'm seeing issues with Kaseya Discovery. Every time I'm trying to run the Discovery it's staring with status 'Installing' and then after a short while it fails to execute with status 'Errored' In the KServer.log file I can see that following entries are being generated: [I 2017-10-20T16:10:09.152655Z +01:00 1576 1104] [ProcessCmd] vsa94-template.root.kserver (737336993533246) logged ...

  • unityjon ,   Go to Info Center, Reporting, Reports, and select "myReports - yourname", and click the "New" dropdown on the ribbon bar.   Select "Legacy Report".   Then select "Audit", and "Aggregate Table". This report will allow you to format all of the columns of audit information, much the way you did with the view, except you can go to the "General" tab, and format it for Excel. Just save,...

  • You need to remove /uptime from the end of your URL. If you're looking for uptime, you'll probably need to use the "LastRebootTime" field in the JSON response, although I think there have been some discussions about how accurate that is. Nate

  • We are also waiting patiently for this patch. I have customers and techs that may soon be rioting. I don't know how much longer I can keep them calm.

  • In regards to powershell, we often build the ps1 file (and other batch files) on the fly in the k-procedure as a workaround i.e in the K-Proc: Execute shell command: echo [Line1 of ps1 file] powershell.ps1 Execute shell command: echo [Line2 of ps1 file] powershell.ps1 Execute shell command: echo [Line3 of ps1 file with #var #] powershell.ps1 Execute shell command: echo [Line 4 of ps1 fil...

  • We use netdom.exe Here's the meaty part of the k-procedure: netdom renamecomputer #vMachine.ComputerName# /newname:#NewComputerName# /userd:#domain#\#Lgn# /passwordd:#Psw# /force /reboot #LFE# It's one of our oldest procs, going back to 6.2 ;) works well for us.

  • szelic True, I did not think of this. Anyone aware of a script that will change a name WITHOUT a user logged in? Something that would allow the name change regardless if the user is logged in, that could later be modified to reboot if not logged in etc? As stated above, the command via cmd was only working on my test machines if an actual user was logged in. at the login screen, it did not chang...

  • Many thanks Corey, we have 9030000 so its outdated, i have however tried with the info center and had a little success but its seems frustratingly confusing getting the correct info into a report with it all aligned when the data comes from different containers. Never mind I'll keep trying.

  • Depending on your version of Kaseya, you can export your view via csv. I am using 9.4. If you're on 9.4 there is a gear all the way to right by your column set selection. Click that and it will give you the options you need to export your view to csv.   The other way would be using the info center to generate what you need. You would have more formatting options using the info center. But it all d...

  • Have you tried PowerShell's Rename-Computer commandlet? You could do an executeshellcommand like so: powershell.exe -NonInteractive -NoProfile -NoLogo -Command 'Rename-Computer -NewName #NEW_NAME#' You could then use a getVariable command before this to prompt the tech for the computer name (NEW_NAME), which gets inserted above. No need to download a script, then do cleanup on the local drive....

  • hmm. for some reason mine is not working with wmic. it worked on a test machine yesterday, not it wont fire and stick. It was only working with a test user account logged in as well. So I did some research and found that powershell without the need for reboot, except as you stated earlier it could affect domain users if the reboot is not immediate.Been swamped today but going to start to play arou...

  • Awesome, I will check this out and see if I can get it to work with your suggestion. Renaming via cmd was working, but only if a user was logged in. It would be nice to be able to run the script, rename the machine (regardless if logged in or not), then reboot if user logged out, or wait until next reboot. This powershell renames the machine without reboot, but I have not been able to test it prop...

  • Create a ps1 file, such as Rename-Computer.ps1, out of your commands and add the following lines at the beginning: [cmdletbinding()] Param (    [String]$ComputerName ) Then call it from a PowerShell prompt like this: .\Rename-Computer.ps1 -ComputerName 'NewName' From Kaseya, you first step should be getVariable(Prompt User, 'Enter New Computer Name', NewName). Then, I would do exec...
