We have a laptop which is not appearing in EEM, it is encrypted... It currently has autoboot but I'd like to disable the autoboot and perform a machaine recovery to confirm the Machine ID and the database ID - is there anyway of doing this on the machine itself?
or use the scripting command "GetLocalMachineName" from a command prompt - that will tell you the ID without communicating to the db.
You might also want to run a group scan on your db to see if this machine is simply an orphan.
type sbadmcl -command:getlocalmachinename -help and it will give you instructions, or look it up in the Scripting guide installed into the documents/tools directory with eem?
