Added feature

I wish EPO 4.5 (and agent 4.5) would add the ability to pull the make/model/serial/bios from a machine with a simple wmi query. We find that it misidentifies alot of Dell Desktop as a mobile device and this would help to be able to create reports by make and model. It would also very very valuable when the disk encryption product intigrates as sometime certain makes and models have different setting needs due to compatibility problems or just flat out cant be encrypted. Having all of that information integrated would save a lot of time.

Currently in the Enpoint Encryption if a user changes the computer name the name does not change in its console thus making it very hard to track down systems. With this there would be multiple ways of tracking down computer and to help be able to prove compliance..

Anyone else agree?

I don't even know that ePO 4.5 is right prepared Smiley Very Happy

Why does your customers change their computer name?
Don't you have formal name in your company for each system?
Isn't it simple not to let them change this name which isn't very important for them?

If you want it then log a product enhancement request here: https://secure.nai.com/apps/downloads/products/product.asp

The more requests they get the more likely it is to be added.

Tony - I think you mean that the more requests they get for "the same" features then the more likely (in a perfect world) they are to be implemented Smiley Very Happy

RE: Added feature

Sorry Tony sad I'd overlooked two things obviously....

1) How soft you Southerners are

2) That you probably need to put a battery + radio + wheels on your car in the morning
