SIR set custom properties with registry key value

hi all

I would like to set the four custom properties with a registry key value.

I configured SIR, but it doesn't work. I don't know where I have to fill in what.

It would be great if someone can explain exactly what I have to configure.

Thanks

In the screenshots you can see my configuration.

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

What are you trying to achieve?

What registry value do you want to appear in the custom property field?

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

I would like to sort my client, based on the custom properties. And so I want to get this registry key values to the custom property fields with SIR.

i would like to have the Standort 1, Standort 2, Standort 3, Standort 4 in the custom property fileds. Like in the screenshot above.

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

I've no hands on experience with SIR but one thing to point out is the key your querying is a 64bit key, 'Wow6432Node' is the clue.

If the machine your trying to query is a 32bit OS then this will fail. Removing the 'Wow6432Node' part of the registry key string will make the query work on a 32bit machine.

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

I know it is a 64 bit Key. The machine has a 64bit OS. So it should work.

I read the SIR user guide, but I don't understand it.

What do I have to fill in in the "Get value of custom environment variable" filed? When i want to have CustomProps1 from HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Network Associates\ePolicyc Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps

in the custom property 1?

thanks for your help

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

I've just done a test and used

FrmInst.exe /CustomProps1="TestValue"

To manually set the customProps 1 field of my agent to a test value. After a full ASIC the test value has appeared in my ePO console.

So am i right in assuming you've used a 'Set Data' SIR policy to set the 'Standort1/2/3/4" values into the agents registry branch?

If so have you restarted the agent service and done a full ASIC on the client?

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

Yes now I also see the four custom properties in ePO Server.

No I have set this four custom properties by hand in the registry. But it also funktion with "SIR set data" to set a value.

My question now is, is it possible to collect any registry key value from the Client registry and set this value as a custom property?

Thank you for your help

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

It appears from the screenshot that you're configuring the Collect Data policy - in order to set a registry key,  you need to configure a Set Registry policy.

Re: SIR set custom properties with registry key value

hi joe

Now I have configured a set registry key policy and it works with setting a registry key value.

But can I use any registry key value for the cunstom properties? or just this four?

Thanks

Only these four, if you want them to be automatically sent back to ePO.
