Automate system transfer to new ePO

Jump to solution

Hello All,

I am about 98% complete with transferring systems from my old ePO to the new ePO. The remaining systems have either been turned off or are laptops/telecommuters and are not on during the window that I manually trigger the "transfer systems" agent task. 

My question is, Is there a way to schedule the "transfer systems" agent task so that when systems come online in the old ePO they will be scheduled to transfer to the new ePO, without me having to go back to the old ePO everyday to do a manual transfer?

Also, I have deleted the systems which are more than a week offline, so if they are to check back into the old ePO, they get placed in the "Lost and Found" systemtree. So, ideally, if a system shows up in this systemtree, I would like it to trigger the "transfer systems" agent task automatically.

Thank You.

Yes, you can create a server task to run a query on system tree and sub-action to transfer system.

Thank you! That did the trick perfectly. I always forget about the power with queries and server tasks. 

Thanks for the help.
